Running with the Sakyong

Sakyong Mipham RinpocheSakyong Mipham Rinpoche is interviewed for the New Yorker Magazine

Last week, New York welcomed Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the leader of the Shambhala Buddhist community, when he spoke at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. The Sakyong, which means “king” – or, literally translated, “earth protector” — in Tibetan, is an incarnate lama. His father, Chogyam Trungpa, escaped from Tibet in the early nineteen-seventies and helped bring the Buddhist teachings of Tibet to the Western world. The Sakyong is a runner as well. “I couldn’t run very far at first,” he chuckles, lacing up his New Balances. Marathons are a regularity these days, and when he visits New York, he prefers to run the Central Park loop.

The New Yorker visited with the Sakyong to get his thoughts on mindfulness. This is one of the largest media exposures the Sakyong has had to date.
