Sadhana of Mahamudra
Every two or three weeks (it’s noted in the calendar), we do a practice called the Sadhana of Mahamudra. This practice is about an hour long, and involves reading aloud (in English) a sadhana or text, which was written by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1968 while on retreat in Bhutan. It is practiced by Shambhala Centers worldwide around the time of the new and full moons. This practice is a means by which we can rouse our devotion and inspiration to practice, and thereby connect with the power and blessings of the past Kagyü and Nyingma lineage holders. The practice consists of meditation and chants, and lasts about an hour. Everyone is welcome to attend.
