First Annual Mountain Bike Fundraising/Pilgrimage From Boulder To the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya.
Great Vajra masters are often quoted as saying bring everything to the path of awakening. For many years of my life I tried to pay attention only to the outdoor sports that I loved. My passion for these activities made me feel awake and alive when doing them but unsure how to cultivate wakefulness in the rest of my life. Learning and practicing meditation over the years has expanded and stabilized my capacity to be present. I asked Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche at a talk last spring if we can use physical exercise to increase our capacity for wakefulness. Essentially, how do I bring my passion onto my path of awakening?
A few weeks after that talk I became aware that the Sakyong has run 9 marathons as a fundraiser to rebuild his fathers monastery in Tibet. It dawned on me like a ton of bricks that this is the way I want to further explore the question of how to integrate my passion and path of meditation. I heartily invite anyone inspired by this pilgrimage to join or support it by clicking this link.
