It’s possible that we could achieve enlightened society. It is not really impractical and purely idealistic at all. Shambhala vision teaches us that we could be heroic, warriorlike and kind at the same time.

The author of Shambhala: the Sacred Path of the Warrior delivers an impassioned plea to all of us to help the world. This beautiful colour video captures his dynamism, depth and humour.

This talk is also available as a set of two talks (Creating An Enlightened Society & Building Enlightened Society) with a study plan. To find out more follow this link

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.

An intimate, compelling look at how the timeless teachings of contemporary Tibetan Buddhist lamas address the big questions--and doubts--of the contemporary west, seen through the narratives of leading practitioners, scholars, and researchers. The photography is dazzling, the portraits extraordinary, the flow natural and engaging.... This film lifts Tibetan Buddhism out of mere historical exoticism, making it direct and relevant.

- Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Contemplative and Religious Studies, Naropa University, author of Dakini's Warm Breath: The Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism.

In 1959, the Chinese invasion of Tibet threw open the doors to the mysterious realm of Tibetan Buddhism and suddenly this rich, ancient tradition was propelled into the modern world.

WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES takes us on an up-close and personal journey following the astounding path of one of the world’s great spiritual traditions from the caves of Tibet to the mainstream of Western culture.

Through candid interviews with contemporary teachers and practitioners, rare archival footage, and striking images of modern life that illuminate and make accessible the Buddha’s core teachings, the film creates a vivid and entertaining portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism, as it is manifesting in America and the West.

"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

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.

These eighteen provocative and powerful dharma discourses were given in Berkeley and Santa Cruz, California in 1976.

Here, meditation master Chogyam Trungpa offers advice on how to transform our lives with skillful means and wisdom as we journey on the three yanas of the Buddhist path. The videos include:

  • Five talks on the hinayana, stressing the importance of meditation practice
  • Seven talks on the mahayana, highlighting the six enlightened actions
  • Six talks on the vajrayana, focussing on the deep commitment to a vajra master required at this stage of practice

Colourful and full of humour, Trungpa Rinpoche also points out the many traps of spiritual materialism and self-deception that may be fatal sidetracks along the way. His relationship with the audience is sometimes magnetizing, sometimes almost shocking or insulting--but always with the goal of introducing people to the compassion and sanity they inherently possess. Let Chogyam Trungpa wake you up with this fresh and profound view of skillful means and wisdom.

In these talks from two 1975 seminars, presented here in digital formats for the first time, Trungpa Rinpoche lays the ground we need to gain a deeper appreciation of the sadhana. In ten talks—six in video and four in audio—the Vidyadhara explains the literal meaning of unfamiliar terms in the sadhana and unpacks the deeper meanings within.Taken together, the talks form the basis for a commentary on the practice. Following long tradition, we study the commentary to derive more richness from the practice itself.

Between April 1976 and November 1983, the Vidyadhara, Chögyam
Trungpa Rinpoche conducted fourteen Vajra Assemblies. These were
large gatherings of his vajrayana students, held at Karme Choling,
Vermont, and Boulder, Colorado. They were very precious occasions,
both to the students and to the vajra master. At the beginning of
the first Vajra Assembly, the Vidyadhara said, “It has never happened
before, in the presentation of Buddhism in America, that purely tantrikas
have gathered together to discuss vajrayana alone.” And he expressed
great delight that this was happening.

The presentation in this package, the Vajra Heart Vajra Assembly, was
the penultimate Assembly and took place in July, 1983, at Karma
Dzong, Boulder. Of all the fourteen Vajra Assemblies, this is the only
one that was recorded on video.
