The Aligned Center, 1 Bridge Street, Suite 64, Irvington, NY 10533.

Note: This event is NOT being held at our Sunday location (Eileen Fisher Headquarters), but instead at The Aligned Center. See below for directions.

**By Invitation Only! These Teachings are by Invitation only and are Restricted to Students who have received Pointing out Instruction in the tradition of Trungpa Rinpoche or have studied Vajrayana teachings with a genuine Vajrayana teacher(s) for at least three years.

** Suggested offering $50 for the full day; $25 for either talk


The Tibetan Buddhist Teachings on How to Die: Rinpoche’s morning talk will focus on the all-important topic for everyone of how to die. He will explain the Tibetan Buddhist teachings on what to do at the actual moment of death, what to do when we are close to that moment, and how to approach and prepare for the moment of death throughout life. Clearly this skill is not something one can magically apply at the moment of death effectively but takes a lifetime to develop. 


Chogyam Trungpa and the Sadhana of Mahamudra: In the afternoon, Venerable Changling Rinpoche will discuss The Sadhana of Mahamudra and the role of this text in the life of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. This text was pivotal in Rinpoche’s presentation of Buddhadharma in the West. It is an extremely advanced tantric practice and while it is made available to the general public on many occasions, we rarely get to discuss its inner meaning. Here, in this context, ChanglingRinpoche will be able to discuss its inner meaning and method of practice with profundity and clarity.
