Gesar Mukpo, son of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, offered this tribute to his father this morning on the 24th anniversary or, in Buddhist terms, Parinirvana (passing beyond) of this great Buddhist meditation teacher and servant to the cause of coming back from clinging, aggression, ignorance and fear to the present moment of this, our fundamentally good human existence!
I put this tribute slideshow to my father together. Check it out and spread the link to anyone who may like to watch it. I feel very fortunate to have had such an amazing father and am honored that he touched so many lives. Happy Parinirvana day all and “jolly good luck!”
A slideshow in tribute to Tibetan master Chögyam Trungpa. Born 1939 in a tent on the plains of Tibet, he died April 4th 1987 in Canada, leaving behind a legacy of meditation centers and Buddhist publications. Music and images used under fair use for educational purposes.
