    In May there will be a special 3:30 PM practice as part of the Introduction to the Sadhana of Mahamudra program with Shastri Bob Gailey.  The program runs May 4-5 from 9am-5pm. You are welcome to come to just the 3:30 practice, or join the whole weekend.  Open to all!

    A sadhana is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist practice involving both meditation and chanting. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (founder of the Shambhala tradition) wrote the Sadhana of Mahamudra in 1968 while in deep contemplation of how to bring the heart of the Buddhist teachings to the West. This profound sadhana invokes the wrathful manifestation of Padmasambhava (the father of Tibetan Buddhism) to help us overcome obstacles and confusion during this time. 

    The Sadhana of Mahamudra is open to the entire Shambhala community and is practiced on or near the new moon days of the lunar calendar.
