Sadhana of Mahamudra Celebration

5:00-7:30PM
In Person

Please save the date to gather together and celebrate! More details to follow, but we are hoping to create a situation in which all of our Boulder sangha can gather for a cherished practice, and in which children can also enjoy the space. For sure there will be dancing to follow for those who wish to join. BSC will provide the main dishes, and refreshments. Please bring a side dish or desert to share.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote the Sadhana of Mahamudra in 1968 while staying in the cave of Taksang in Bhutan. The Sadhana of Mahamudra invokes the wrathful manifestation of Padmasambhava, called Dorje Trolö, to help us overcome obstacles and confusion in our time. 

It involves meditation, visualization, and chanting.

This practice is open to all.

SHAMBHALA DAY marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. Based on the traditional Tibetan New Year’s celebration of Losar, the day is calculated astrologically according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.
