Judith Lief

September 14, 2013

There is no tuition for this program, however, a teachers gift would be appropriate.

We will meet from 9-5 in the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya,with a break from 12-2 for lunch. Naropa University has generously offered to sponsor the cost of lunch, so no payment for lunch will be required.  Please plan to arrive on the land by 8:30am to allow time to park and get up to the Stupa.

Please join Acharya Emeritus Judy Lief at the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya (the Stupa built in honor of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche)  for the resounding, or recitation, of the final chapters of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. This program is open to all and includes  group meditation practice, listening and reciting, and discussion.

Between 1973 and 1986, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche conducted a series of annual study and practice intensives, called “Vajradhatu Seminaries.” In these programs he presented heart teachings on the three stages of Tibetan Buddhism to his most senior students. Transcripts of these teachings were available only to authorized students.

Now, forty years after the first Vajradhatu Seminary took place, Acharya Emeritus Judy Lief has completed the mammoth work of compiling and editing the seminary material into three volumes totaling more than 2,000 pages. With the publication of The Profound Treasury, for the first time, these teachings have become publically available.

This is a chance to experience this powerful land center found by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and the site of his last two Vajradhatu seminaries. Shambhala Mountain Center embodies the brilliance, wildness, and beauty of the teachings of this extraordinary spiritual visionary.
