Celebrating Thirty Years in Australia
In January 1985, Sogyal Rinpoche visited Australia and New Zealand for the first time. He was among the first Tibetan masters to bring the Dzogchen teachings to that part of the world, and his media appearances and book had a major impact in making Buddhism mainstream.
To celebrate its thirtieth anniversary, Rigpa Australia has been gathering the story of these first visits, interviewing pioneers, scanning photographs and documents, and digitising early teachings. Ann Pickering, who has led the project, shares some glimpses.
A world-renowned Buddhist teacher from Tibet, Sogyal Rinpoche is also the author of the highly acclaimed The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.
Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
Sogyal Rinpoche’s acclaimed spiritual classic is widely regarded as one of the most complete and authoritative presentations of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings ever written.
