Parinirvana Day with a Sadhana of Mahamudra Feast

April 4 / 6:30 PM - April 4 / 9:00 PM

On the anniversary of the Parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the founder of  Shambhala, the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the community is invited to the Sadhana of Mahamudra Feast practice. This is usually reserved for advanced students but is open to everyone on this day each year.  We will eat potluck style, so please bring food to share (drinks will be provided).

A celebratory period during the feast will include the showing of a 1976 video recording of a talk by the Trungpa Rinpoche at Naropa Institute (“Shunyata: Emptiness, between this and that, beyond concept.”)

If you have a personal or special picture of Trungpa Rinpoche, we will have a table set up to share these.

Please RSVP so that we can prepare properly.
