Join us to celebrate Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's birthday as a community!

Come to the Community Potluck afterwords, share your favorite dish, catch up with friends and meet some new ones too!
5:30-6:45pm Sadhana of Mahamudra, Longevity Supplication and Closing Chants

Since we are not able to share the Sakyong's birthday with him in person, we will share in an evening of festivities to honor this special day!
Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche serves as temporal and spiritual director of Shambhala. The Sakyong—literally "earth-protector"—is a "dharma king" and lineage holder of Shambhala, a tradition that emphasizes confidence in the enlightened nature of all beings, and teaches a courageous life, based on wisdom and compassion. He also holds the Kagyü and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.
