Ongoing Study Group:The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma

A study group is forming to take a close look at the edited compilation of the Ven. Chogyam Trungpa’s thirteen Vajradhatu Seminary transcripts. They have been topically arranged by editor Acharya Emeritus Judy Lief and cover a vast outline of Buddhist Dharma. We plan to read and discuss this material, now available publicly, and published by Shambhala Publications, Boston.

It is not necessary to buy the books. We have a copy to share as we take turns reading each evening.  If you wish to purchase your own copy, they are available at www.shambhala.com/the-profound-treasury-of-the-ocean-of-dharma.html or at other online retailers.  As of May 16, we are reading Volume 2, titled “The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion.”

This program will be held at our Mid-Town Delek, the (handicap accessible) home of Muffie and Chris Noble-Power on Monday evenings. Snacks/light supper will be provided at 6:30pm with the book study starting at 7:00pm – 8:30pm.  Please contact Chris at 602-696-9694 or Muffie at 602 885 1811 for address/directions.
