Summer 2010: The Drala Lineage of Mukpo

“The dralas are there, waiting to come along and meet you,” said the mahasiddha Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the Druk Sakyong of Shambhala. “I feel that I could give you, impart to you, introduce to you, such wonderful ladies and gentlemen of the drala principle. They are longing to meet you. At this point I’m afraid I have to be very bold: they’re longing to meet you.”

It is one of the great gifts of being part of our mandala that we are able to share in this luminous vision and experience of enlightened energy. This profound sense of meeting and connecting lies at the heart of understanding lineage. One way of understanding “lineage” is “linkage” – that which links each of us to our true nature, to each other, to the teachings, to the succession of teachers and to primordial wisdom itself.

This sense of fundamental linkage was expressed by Lady Diana Mukpo when she addressed a gathering of the Shambhala leadership in Boulder in 2006. “I think the fundamental reason that dharma has been able to make itself applicable in many different situations and cultures, is for the same reason that you will have many different links in lineage in the form of lineage holders,” she said. “Trungpa Rinpoche, as brilliant as he was, was one link in this lineage that has tremendous broad vision stretching into the future.”

Thus, when we recite the lines in the Shambhala Lineage chant each morning – invoking the drala lineage of Mukpo that brings about the new golden age – we are opening ourselves to limitless possibilities that radiate like the rays of the Great Eastern Sun. At the core of this vision, is the unwavering intention to further fulfill this lineage vision on this earth in our lifetime.

It is in this spirit that we invite you to take time to read through the following updates, from news of the Sakyong and Sakyong Wangmo, an update on developments in the sphere of Practice and Education, right through to the live links where you can find out about the latest innovations in creating online community.
