In 1968, Trungpa Rinpoche left the United Kingdom for the first time since he arrived there in 1963. He journeyed from Scotland to Bhutan with two Western students: Richard Arthure and Dan Russell. Until recently, few people knew that Dan Russell took a number of extraordinary photographs during their travels. This slide show presents a selection of those photos, most of which have not been previously published. They include images from Samye Ling, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, and Trungpa Rinpoche’s journey on horseback to the retreat at Taktsang where he would receive the Sadhana of Mahamudra.


Chögyam Trungpa’s comments are excerpted from the Sadhana of Mahamudra seminar, Boulder, Colorado, 1975; photographs by Dan Russell.
These images are presented here with the consent of Dan Russell, and with the permission of the Shambhala Archives. Thank you to Dan and to the Archives for making these images available. Thank you to Silvia Hast, who traveled from Boulder, Colorado to England to scan these images. Thank you also to Marvin Ross for his digital restoration work on these images.
