Sadhana’ is a chanted group practice which comes from the Tibetan monastic tradition. The Sadhana of Mahamudra was introduced to the Shambhala community in the early 1970’s by its author and the founder of Shambhala, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Chanting the Sadhana together with visualization and mantra, we invoke the blessings of our sacred lineages of the past and present. Through this sadhana we especially connect with the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibet, which are foundation lineages of Shambhala.

The sadhana contains a vivid description of the obstacles presented by physical, psychological, and spiritual materialism in the modern age and prescribes unwavering devotion to wakefulness as the antidote to the materialistic outlook. You can read more about the Sadhana of Mahamudra here.

All are welcome.

The Sadhana is usually practiced in the Boston Shambhala Nyinthuns (Sunday group meditation) when these coincide with full and new moon days. On other days of the week the Sadhana is available thru Ocean Online.  Their schedule is found here:
