In this three-talk public program held at Shambhala Mountain Center in August 2007, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche introduces the three-yana path of Tibetan Buddhism and the Shambhala principles of tiger, lion, garuda, dragon, and the Great Eastern Sun. Topics include
- What is enlightenment?
- Three elements of the path: view, meditation, & activity
- How the practice of contemplation unravels the matrix of concept
- How the four maras obscure emptiness and luminosity
- How the virtues of contentment, compassion, equanimity, & selflessness build "inner sustainability" in daily life
In addition, the Sakyong offers guided meditation in the practices of
peaceful abidiing, contempation, and ground lungta (windhorse).
