No events scheduled at this time.
Our last event was a showing of the film, Wandering . . . But Not Lost on Saturday, March 27, 2021. This is the story of Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Master Mingyu Rinpoche and his spiritual journey of 4-1/2 years in India, Tibet and Nepal. You may still be able to see it when it will be released soon on Vimeo.
Wandering . . . But Not Lost
Under cover of darkness and with no word of his plans, much-beloved Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche walked away from his life on the international stage to live that of a wandering yogi. Unheard of among eminent teachers today, such a practice is rife with hardships. For Mingyur Rinpoche, these challenges–begging, finding food and shelter, illness and all the attendant risks of wandering incognita from place to place with the barest of possessions–present fertile ground for deepening insight into the true nature of the mind.
Layered over this story is exotic footage of ancient and holy places, such as Langtang, Nubri, Dolpo and Lapchi where Tibet’s most famous yogi and poet Jetsun Milarepa (1052-1135) lived in solitary meditation. Kushinagar, where the Buddha passed away, Varanasi, Rishikesh, Ladakh and Amritsar are also featured, along with one of the holiest Hindu shrines on the subcontinent: Vaishno Devi, reached by an arduous 14-kilometer hike up a mountain path full of joyous Hindus.
“The entire path is a shift in perception,” says Mingyur Rinpoche. These and other words of wisdom culled from his extraordinary wandering retreat and devoted adherence to his meditative practice will touch–and inspire–audiences everywhere.
