Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche's recent visit to Skellig Michael and Dzogchen Beara.

Crossing Thresholds from Dzogchen Beara on Vimeo.

I was delighted to be sent the above video of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche's recent visit to Ireland. I was only just blogging about it a few weeks ago so I am posting the video here for your further enjoyment and edification.

Thank you so much to Olivier Riche from Rigpa for sending it to me, and to all the many people who made and contributed to this incredibly inspiring record of this historic meeting of Tibetan Buddhism and Irish Christianity.

Skellig Michael looks so amazing and the new Spiritual Care Centre at Dzogchen Beara, West Cork has blossomed into such a peaceful and compassionate space, largely due to the life-long drive and aspiration of Sogyal Rinpoche and close disciples such as Chris Whiteside.

Congratulations and love to all involved. We rejoice in your great wisdom and compassion!
