"This is the darkest hour of the dark ages. Disease, famine and warfare are raging like the fierce north wind." ~ from the Introduction to the Sadhana of Mahamudra

The Sadhana of Mahamudra is a terma text received and written by the Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (and later translated into English by he and Rirchard Arthure) in 1968 while practicing in Takstang in Bhutan in a cave that Padmasambhava himself practiced in over a thousand years ago.

It is a very special and profound vajrayana sadhana practice that is unique to Shambhala and also unique in that it is open to practitioners of all levels.

In this weekend we will discuss the particulars of the Sadhana of Mahamudra practice and the deeper meaning of the principles involved, such as “crazy wisdom” “devotion,” the "guru principle," and the “charnel ground.”

This class is open to all. Everyone who is interested is welcomed to attend the free introduction on Friday evening before deciding to commit to the weekend.

We will be using Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism as the text for this course. Please read the Introduction and first chapter before the program.
