Sadhana of Mahamudra – A Practice For This Dark Age

Explore this recorded Shambhala Online course at your own pace.

About the Course

The Sadhana of Mahamudra is considered one of Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s most important and enduring legacies. As a practice liturgy it is a powerful way to engage with the highest teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. According to his own teachers and other respected Buddhist leaders, it is terma, or mind treasure, worthy of a lifetime of study. 

In five recorded classes of study and practice, Suzann Duquette leads a deep exploration of the Sadhana of Mahamudra. Five talks were filmed via Karmê Chöling in 2020 during a Parinirvana weekend celebration of Trungpa Rinpoche’s life and teachings. Key themes and sadhana structure are explored, followed by contemplations and readings.
The video classes include footage of Trungpa Rinpoche’s travel to Taktsang in Bhutan, a talk by Rinpoche about his experience at his retreat there, and funeral rites for the Vidyadhara at Karmê Chöling in 1987.
This self-paced course can be taken by individuals or groups as a weekend retreat or over a span of several weeks. Practice sessions, led by Suzann Duquette and Umdze Marian English, are accessible on their own for practice at any time.
