Vajra Dharma: Invoking Drala

with Eric Spiegel
February 23 / 2:00 PM - February 23 / 5:00 PM

Prerequisite: Shambhala Vajrayana / Vajradhatu Seminary


As the year of the Water Snake draws to a close, and we look toward the dawning of the Wood Horse, please join me for an afternoon of practice and engagement in the varja dharma.  As we know, the opportunity to study and discuss the secret vajra view teachings is extraordinarily rare.

The afternoon will include a period of practice (*Dharmaraja Guru Yoga), a talk and open discussion. Acharya Eric Spiegel will talk about different ways we can practice invoking drala, wisdom and enrichment in our lives and also discuss vajrayana culture as a whole.  Please bring your questions and prajna mind.

*If you have this liturgy, please bring it with you.

Acharya Eric Spiegel is among a small number of Western teachers empowered by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche as a senior teacher (Acharya) representing the Shambhala lineage.  He has been teaching the Shambhala Dharma since the mid 1970s.  Eric has worked extensively with the ill and dying, helping them to realize their wisdom in the face of impermanence, and has had a decades-long career in finance.  He lives in a very old house in rural New York State.
