In July 2010, Sakyong Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche emerged from his year-long retreat to teach Shambhala Vajrayana Seminary at Shambhala Mountain Center. This DVD set contains four talks from that occasion:
- Talk 1: Overview of Vajrayana, July 12, 3 h. 10 min.
- Talk 2: Shambhala: The Path of Skillful Means, July 16, 2 h. 30 min.
- Talk 3: The Great Mandala Offering, July 17, 43 min.
- Talk 4: Feast Talk, July 17, 22 min
In these talks it is clear that the Sakyong is speaking from the space of deep retreat, expressing the essence of the Shambhala lineage and the immediacy of our situation. One theme that forms an overall thread is the notion of “transforming our mind as a seed to transform the world.”
The 3 DVD-set comes with a five-session syllabus, available as a PDF file on the first DVD. It is intended particularly for use in vajrayana practice intensives and group study situations.
Total length: 6 hours 45 minutesAvailable to those who have attended Shambhala Vajrayana Seminary or Sacred World Assembly.
