    Discussion of the film "Wandering....But Not Lost" on Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Parinirvana

    Sunday April 4th is Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s parinirvana. Following the regular online sitting from 10:00-10:45, the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s monthly “dharma talk” will be a conversation about a new film – Wandering…But Not Lost. The film gives an intimate account of Mingyur Rinpoche's four-and-a-half-year wandering retreat interspersed with the master’s own guidance in applying Buddhist wisdom to our daily modern lives. The film’s director, Paul MacGowan, will be joining the conversation.

    There is no cost for the weekly Sunday Morning Sittings. Join Sunday Morning Sit at:

    Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

    Like Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche has had a classic Tibetan training in the profound Buddhist practices of Dzogchen and Mahamudra from Kagyu and Ningma teachers. At age 20, he was asked to oversee the activities at Sherab Ling Monastery in northern India, one of the most important monasteries in the Kagyu lineage. Following in the footsteps of Kagyu masters like Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa and Milarepa, he chose a wandering retreat which tested his training in order to explore the true nature of his being.

    A group from the Victoria Shambhala Centre is finishing up a five-night book study on Mingyur Rinpoche’s inspiring text, In Love With the World, which covers the first six weeks of this four year wandering retreat. The study group has found that he makes the dharma accessible through teachings that emerge directly from his initial unsettling experiences.
