Commemoration of the Vajra Regent Osel Tenzin


August 25 / 7:00 PM - August 25 / 9:00 PM

Sadhana of Mahamudra celebration of the passing away of the Vajra Regent Ösel Tendzin. We also received from the Vajra Regent Ösel Tendzin Library the video "Devotion, Surrender, and Samaya." This talk was given August 20, 1986 at Rocky Mountain Dharma Center (now Shambhala Mountain Center) during the Vajrayana section of the 1986 Vajradhatu Seminary. The Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche had left the seminary unexpectedly and charged the Vajra Regent with conducting the remainder of the seminary.

"As a student and child of mine, Ösel Tendzin has developed his natural ability to respond to the teachings of egolessness. He not only intellectually comprehends these teachings, but he has actually practiced and trained himself in this way. Although I would not say Ösel Tendzin is an enlightened person, he is one of the greatest examples of a practitioner who has followed the command of the Buddha and his guru and the tradition of the Practice Lineage."

-Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
