Obituary for BOB BEDNARZ of the Atlanta, Georgia Community

Our dear vajra brother Bob Bednarz passed away on Jun 24th at 6:45PM with his wife Carol and his friends by his side.

Since he met Choegyal Namkhai Norbu in 2000 in New York, Bob was deeply dedicated to the Dzogchen teachings and strived to integrate it in his everyday life. With great enthusiasm he introduced many to Rinpoche’s teachings. Countless times him and his wife Carol kindly opened their home for practice to the Atlanta Dzogchen Group.

Please, include Bob and his wife Carol in your practice to help them in this time of a great transition.

Bob was also a longtime student of Chogyam Trungpa attending Trungpa Rinpoche’s last Three month Seminary in 1986. He began teaching the Buddhist classes portion of the Way of Shambhala training and then the weekend level programs. In recent years Bob "specialized" in directing Level I. He was also a teacher for Open Houses and Learn to Meditate programs. For many years, he served as the audio technician for all Atlanta Shambhala Center programs.

A funeral service is scheduled at the Atlanta Shambahla Center on Friday, June 27, 2014 1:00pm to 3:30pm
