Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's Stories of Shechen Kongtrül

Read by Larry Mermelstein

19 December 2013

This passage from Tulku Urgyen's memoirs was read by Larry Mermelstein during a Sun of Wisdom feast in Halifax some years ago. The Sun of Wisdom is a guru sadhana composed by Trungpa Rinpoche to his root guru, Jamgön Kongtrül of Shechen. This exceptionally beautiful sadhana was the first feast liturgy practiced by Trungpa Rinpoche's western students, starting in the 1970s. Karma Senge Rinpoche has chosen to incorporate the feast section from this sadhana as an alternative, more elaborate feast offering to be used for The Sadhana of Mahamudra and for the Vidyadhara's sadhanas of Avalokiteshvara and Tröma Nagmo. For more information, including how to order the sadhana, please visit THE SUN OF WISDOM.
