"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.

These teachings—from the 2013 Shambhala
Sadhana retreat in Boulder—are for all Shambhala
Sadhana practitioners. The Sakyong has requested that students watch them
within the format of a group practice of the sadhana, if possible led by a
shastri or another senior teacher. The material is grouped into five natural
parts, so the series would be for five sessions, each starting with a full
practice of the sadhana.
Here is the organization and timing of those five parts:
1. Introduction: Sadhana as
Human Journey & Social Practice (68 min.)
2. Commentary, Part I (97
3. Shambhala Meditation
& Shambhala Sadhana (68 min.)
4. Commentary, Part II (78
5. The Sakyong Wangmo’s
Remarks & Q/A (33 min.)
