Sakyong Interviewed for The New Yorker Magazine

Sakyong Mipham RinpocheThe Sakyong is featured in a five minute video on the website of The New Yorker magazine.

As it says on the website:

“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 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.”
