Parinirvana Day 2020 Resources

Filed under Community Articles, International Programs

To the Noble Sangha,

We hope that each of you are well and cared for during this groundlessness.

Each year on April 4th, Shambhala marks the life and passing of its founder, the Vidyadhara, the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, with the commemoration of Parinirvana Day.

As we approach the anniversary of Trungpa Rinpoche’s death in these extraordinary times, the impact he has on our lives feels particularly present.

It’s traditional to practice The Sadhana of Mahamudra, one of Trungpa Rinpoche’s seminal works, on this day. This sadhana describes the dark age of materialism, how we can look directly at the vividness of that experience, and how we can supplicate the wisdom of the lineage to support us. Usually, we would gather in our centres to practice and offer toasts, poetry and sangha kinship.

Since most of us are isolating at home, we can practice the Sadhana of Mahamudra or other practices by Trungpa Rinpoche on our own or online with friends.
