From Native American Sweat Lodges to Pioneering Zen Monastery
with a Foreword by David Chadwick
from Cuke Press, a project of Cuke Archives
This book is based on a scrapbook that sat for years in the office of Tassajara Springs, Zen Mountain Center, deep in the mountains of Monterey County, California. It was put together by Marilyn McDonald who was a frequent guest at Tassajara from the mid-seventies to mid-eighties. From the day she arrived she was fascinated with the history of the place, did extensive research and many interviews. Marilyn passed away January, 2017, and a combination of her friends, family, and a few of us Zennies put a lot of effort into polishing it up and making it widely available.
Karma Changchub Ling is pleased to announce that Khandro Rinpoche will visit Halifax to give teachings on "Mind Training (Lojong)" on August 3 and August 4. The teachings will take place in the McInnes Room on the Dalhousie Campus. Registration will start June 1.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, mahateacher, archetypal spiritual guide, an important teacher to Trungpa Rinpoche, was born in 1910 in Eastern Tibet and recognized as a tulku while still in his mother's womb by Mipham Rinpoche. He was later enthroned as an emanation of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, one of the most important tertons and writers of 19th century Tibet.
Khyentse Rinpoche's visits to the West in the 1970s and 80s had a profound effect on the students of Trungpa Rinpoche who naturally formed a heart connection with this great being. I think it's safe to say that for all students of the Vidyadhara, the connection that we feel with Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche is beyond words.
At the request of Lady Könchok Paldrön (Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's mother), Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche composed the following supplication to Trungpa Rinpoche.
