Primordial Rigden embodies the wisdom and compassion of inherent basic goodness
and is at the heart of Shambhala Buddhist meditation practice. Composed by
Cynthia Moku under the guidance of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, this painting
conveys what is referred to as the magical heart of Shambhala--the brilliant
and peaceful presence of basic goodness and enlightened rulership. It was
completed in April 2005 for the first Rigden Abhisheka.
available: Realizing Confidence, a documentary film showing aspects of
the painting's development and a booklet describing the meaning of the
Primordial Rigden, including the symbolism of the painting.
