Festive Gathering: Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 pm
Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the Tibetan New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. It is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through feasting, conviviality, elegance, and pomp. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will give his annual address to the worldwide Shambhala Community via the Internet — the global gathering will include centers and groups from 5 continents and over 25 countries around the world. Please join us for all or part of this festive Shambhala Day!
