The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional bravery. Historically, rigdens were enlightened rulers — those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness. This weekend includes a transmission of windhorse practice, study of the Six Waysof Ruling, and an opportunity to proclaim a commitment to basic goodness by formally taking the Shambhala Vow.
