Don Season Mamos Chants
February 1 / 5:30 PM - February 9 / 8:45 PM
Shambhala Day marks the end of one year's cycle and the beginning of a new one.
To dispel the karmic accumulation of personal, social, and environmental chaos at the
year's end, all students are encouraged to practice as much as possible in the period
just before Shambhala Day. In particular, students are encouraged to recite the mamo
chants together beginning eleven days before Shambhala Day.
The mamo chant is an elaborate protector offering traditionally recited from the twentieth through the twenty-ninth days of the last lunar month of the Tibetan year. By reciting the chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook. The day before Shambhala Day is considered neutral and is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines in preparation for the coming year.

This practice is open to all who are engaged in the regular practice of meditation.
