(Eagle Rock) Sadhana of Mahamudra Community Practice

April 26th

Date details +
    Room: EAGLE ROCK SHAMBHALA- Main Shrine Room- 963 Colorado Blvd, 90041

    OPEN TO ALL!

    Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of the Shambhala centers, wrote the Sadhana of Mahamudra practice, which is chanted aloud in a group session on the new moon of each month. This practice text is a terma, one of the teachings magically concealed by the great Tibetan teacher Padmasambhava for the sake of future generations. Terma are discovered by tertons, special teachers who are able to find these teachings during the auspicious times when they are most needed.

    Sadhana practices are usually very secret, but this one is unusual because it is public: a person walking in off the street can come in and participate in the practice (although it is always led by a person who has received the permission blessing and teachings about this practice). The practice is done on new moons days, when our moods and thought patterns tend to be most unruly. 

    Instead of running away from the chaos of a busy mind, we invite you to join us for this practice!
     
    No charge for the event, but donations in any amount will be gratefully accepted.  
     

    The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

    If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
