In May 2008, Dechen Choling hosted the Gesar Festival, bringing together His Eminence Namkha Rinpoche, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and Jigme Rinpoche to teach on Gesar and the warriorship principles of Shambhala. In the first talk of the program, offered here on DVD, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche shows how our particular time is appropriate for the presentation of enlightenment in terms of the warrior principle, embodied in the legendary warrior king, Gesar of Ling. The Sakyong goes on to present the outer and inner aspects of Shambhala warriorship, ending with a guided meditation that emphasizes the practice of riding the life-force energy.

"My father and mother were born in Tibet, but I was born in India and didn’t visit my parents’ native land until 2001. There I traveled through some of the most vast, spacious, and beautiful land in the world."—Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

In 2001 Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche visited Tibet for the first time, where he was greeted by thousands of people, not only as the current Sakyong and an emanation of Mipham the Great, but also as living proof of the vitality of Buddhism, returning to the place that his father had left. Huge audiences gathered to hear his teachings.

This selection of sixteen scenic video highlights from that journey includes

  • The Sakyong's arrival in Surmang
  • His first meeting with the twelfth Trungpa Rinpoche
  • A visit to an orphanage
  • The colourful arrival of Gesar on horseback

Exquisite footage reveals the splendor of Tibet and its people, who came to meet the Sakyong and to receive his blessings.

On 2 March 2012, the Sakyong, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche, gave a public talk to an assembly of over 900 people in the historic Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, where he introduced the Shambhala teachings on basic goodness and enlightened society. In pointing out how our innermost feelings about who we are have an impact on society, he stressed the importance of self-reflecting on our human nature. As he said:

That moment when we get up in the morning, that split-second decision about how we feel about ourselves, is really inexpressible. That moment of self- reflection and how we value our own existence has a dynamic and powerful consequence on how we treat ourselves—and especially now, in terms of society, how we treat others.


The DVD includes as a PDF file an outline of the talk, which can be used for personal study or in the context of group discussions.
