Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche Parinirvana and CD Archive Fundraiser
The Vidyadhara Chogyam Trunpa Rinpoche’s Parinirvana on April 4th, 2009 was a wonderful community celebration. We had the good the fortune of hosting our guest Acharya Dorje Loppon Lodro Dorje for the event, as well as over 80 community members. Food, poems, readings and stories were shared.
After the Parinirvana, we held an auction to raise money for our local Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche CD Archive, which holds over 1300 recorded teachings covering a vast range of topics. With the help of Gail Flynn and Larry Teitelbaum, Louise Miller’s decadent deserts, and the entire community, we raised over $4000. We exceeded our goal! The Archive will be available to the community beginning in May for check-out, or to listen to in the center, or take advantage of the the Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche Study Group beginning April 23rd. The money from the auction will be used to pay for the archive (our final payment) and to purchase a shelf to make the rest of the archive available to the community. Thank you to everyone who participated!
