Sogyal Rinpoche in New York:

The Natural Freedom of Mind








Two day event at Florence Gould Hall.

June 10 & June 11.

During this rare weekend retreat, Sogyal Rinpoche will teach on understanding the mind and the wisdom of meditation following in the spirit of the extraordinary teachings of Dzogchen—the Great Perfection, which is the highest wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition.

By integrating the wisdom of these teachings fully into our daily life, our inherent awareness, wakefulness, wisdom, love, and compassion begin to radiate out to everything we do and to everyone we encounter. We become truly alive—confident, open and at ease in any situation.

Movie Night! Buddha’s Lost Children

Filmed on location among the hill tribes in the border regions of Burma and Thailand. A nomadic, horseback-riding Buddhist monk, Phra Kru Ba, a former boxer known as the “Tiger Monk,” devotes his life to helping the isolated communities there, and rescuing orphan children. With his Golden Horse Temple he’s built an orphanage, school and clinic, a haven for the children of the region, who see him as a shaman, father figure and coach.

Buddha’s Lost Children gives the term “grassroots Buddhism” new meaning.
