In October of 2009, Thrangu Rinpoche visited Los Angeles, California
and conducted a public talk on Overcoming Obstacles in These
Times. This event was presented by Vajra Vidya Los Angeles
and Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles. The Shambhala
Sangha recorded this talk and through their kindness and generosity,
have allowed us to offer it to you.
The difficulties and trials we are experiencing in these times
may seem unique and unprecedented, but human beings throughout
the ages have experienced these same fears, doubts and challenges.
In this teaching, Thrangu Rinpoche will offer examples of the
struggles of past practitioners of the Buddhadharma and will share
with us the wisdom and skillful means that are available to us
to meet the demands and to overcome the disappointments inherent
in this existence.
