Greetings Dharma folk!
Well, it has surely been a busy week! We have had the pleasure of having Shamar Rinpoche visit us here in Pasadena, San Luis Obispo, and culminating with the event in Santa Monica this evening, so don’t miss it! I’ve been the un-official paparazzi for the events so I will be posting reports and photos in the coming days. For now, please enjoy these images from Rinpoche’s visit to Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena last Thursday.
The event was well attended by many of Rinpoche’s students as well as folks meeting him for the first time. Rinpoche gave a wonderful talk discussing his new book, The Path to Awakening, and explained the origins of the root text his commentary is based on. The event was so well attended that all of Rinpoche’s books sold out! Vroman’s staff was very helpful and handed out book plates to be signed by Rinpoche and offered to take book orders with free shipping. Many of the visitors were from our local Pasadena Bodhi Path Center, as well as the Los Angeles Bodhi Path and Diamond Way Centers.
