Parinirvana of the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche


April 6 / 9:00 AM - April 6 / 11:00 AM

Parinirvana of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Sunday April 6  9 am - 11 am

(Although his parinirvana falls on April 4, we will celebrate it at the center on Sunday April 6)

On this day we celebrate the life and teachings of the founder of Shambhala, the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.  We do this in the context of a Sadhana of Mahamudra Feast.  The Sadhana of Mahamudra is a text Trungpa Rinpoche received which helps us to directly experience reality.  On his parinirvana day, we add a simple feast practice.  During the feast everyone is invited, if they would like, to share a reading from Trungpa Rinpoche's work.  The Sadhana and celebration activities will take place in the main shrine room.


These events are being offered instead of regular sitting practice.  There will be no reading or discussion.
