A talk on the life of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche in Halifax, Canada

Talk by Erik Pema Kunsang & Marcia Binder Schmidt co-authors of Blazing Spendor: The Memoirs of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche will give a talk on the life of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche Friday, September 9 7:00 pm, $10, open to all
Intimate in tone, these personal memoirs recount the influences and experiences that shaped one of the great spiritual teachers of our time. Blazing Splendor is both of spiritual and historical import. Erik Pema Kunsang began translating with Tulku Urgen in 1980. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche was among Tibetan Buddhism's greatest masters of the 20th century, and was highly instrumental in bringing the practice of Dzogchen (Great Perfection) to the West.

Thank you for this wonderful book. We are reading a few pages a day out loud to each other, and savoring every moment of it.
