Sadhana of Mahamudra Community Weekend

with Rupa Acharya Suzann Duquette

April 3 - 4

This all-sangha weekend is a celebration at Karmê Chöling - the inaugural location of Shambhala in the modern age. We will explore the relevance of the Sadhana of Mahamudra in our lives and, on Sunday, April 4, will celebrate the Parinirvana of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The Sadhana of Mahamudra was written by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche while on retreat in Bhutan in 1968. This retreat marked a profound turning point in his presentation of the buddhadharma. The text and practice contain essence teachings for Western culture on overcoming obstacles and degraded spiritual practices in our time. The text presents a fruition vajrayana view, bringing together the devotion mahamudra of the Kagyü and the crazy wisdom ati of the Nyingma. As such, it is a powerful touchstone for understanding Shambhala’s vajrayana heritage.
