(Orange County) Celebration of the Parinirvana of the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Parinirvana (death of an enlightened being) of the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Please join us as we come together and celebrate the life, lineage and outrageous wisdom of this extraordinary teacher.
The highlight of the evening will be a streaming video showing of Discovering Elegance—an amazing 16mm film of the Druk Sakyong and his students demonstrating the contemplative Shambhala arts and design, as they prepare an environmental art exhibit held at the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art in 1981. This offering has been made available to us through the generosity of the Shambhala Archives.
We will also enjoy practice, toasts, elegant appetizers, poetry and stories. Bring your favorite Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche photograph, poem or quote. And those who had the good fortune to meet the Vidyadhara, please bring your stories to share!
