Room: Main Shrine Room

Every year on the anniversary of the parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the whole community is invited to practice the profound Sadhana of Mahamudra Feast, a practice usually reserved for advanced students. The Sadhana of Mahamudra was received as terma by Chogyam Trungpa in 1968 and was a pivotal moment in his presentation of Buddhism in the West. There will be a celebratory period during the feast section where devotional poems, songs, dances and other remembrances of the Buddha activity of the founder of Shambhala are offered.

Listening to practitioners, old and new, express their fresh and heartfelt connection to the Vidyadhara is a great delight. Please join us for this special event and add your enriching presence to what may well be a formative experience for many newer practitioners. The message and insight from this evening of practice continues to be appropriate and powerful.

Practice begins at 7:00 pm; Set up at 6:00 pm. Please join for set up if you can.

This will be a large event where seating will be limited: please register online so we know to expect you and get in touch if you can help, have questions, ideas, or contributions.
