Please join us for the annual celebration of Parinirvana Day, the anniversary of the passing of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of Shambhala. On this occasion we come together to remember Trungpa Rinpoche’s legacy by practicing the Sadhadhana of Mahamudra ganachakra or feast offering. This is the sadhana, written by Trungpa Rinpoche, normally chanted at the Shambhala Center, in this case including a feast offering insert. This is a special occasion, where once a year any level of practitioner may join in this vajrayana ritual.  During this feast offering section there are usually food, drink, poetry, stories, or other offerings.  All are welcome, so please bring your friends, inspiration and inquisitiveness.

You are also welcome to direct any inquiries or offerings you would like to share to Bill Wooding, [email protected]

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

Please register online so we know to expect you and get in touch if you can help, have questions, ideas, or contributions.
