Rubin Museum of Art September 29 was SOLD OUT

Blazing Splendor Book Reading event on Thursday, September 29, 2005 in New York City at 7:00pm at the Rubin Museum of Art was SOLD OUT

Readings from the newly published Memoirs of the Dzogchen Yogi Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche with Sharon Salzberg, Daniel & Tara Goleman, Mingyur Rinpoche, Erik Pema Kunsang, Marcia Binder Schmidt, Michael Tweed and Tom Lesser. Blazing Splendor provides a first-hand glimpse into what actually took place in the last decades of old Tibet, through the eyes of an insider who held little illusion about what was to transpire in his country. The book spans an exceptional period in Tibetan history and provides a telling, up-close look at the treachery of Lhasa politics during this endgame. Tulku Urgyen describes his days as the Karmapa\'s envoy to the Tibetan government and finally how the spiritual greatness that was once Tibet manages to resurrect itself in the world beyond, as he—auguring what was to come—flees Tibet a year before the Dalai Lama himself. A co-presentation with Tricyle, a Buddhist magazine.

I thought the staging of the performance was creative and that the format, the stories being told, presented Rinpoche's approach to teaching -- attractive, and a very available manner!

A last minute glitch prevented me from attending the reading from
Blazing Splendor. It must have been exciting. (Now I'll just have to buy the book ;-)

Hi Erik,

Do you by any chance took some pictures of the event? I am very interested especially with Mingyur Rinpoche in it.

Thanks again.
