Midsummer’s Day 1980

A Glimpse of Midsummer's Past


A year comes like a dragon,
And today is like the spinal cord of the dragon.
It’s time to celebrate, but at the same time,
It is time to organize some sense
of exertion in our lives …

The day of Midsummer’s Day
is a day of breakthrough,
a day of actually realizing
how life can be understood and appreciated.
Plan your life so you can help others.

-Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
