It is offered to (1) participants of the Shambhala Sadhana transmission taking place the next day, May 12, or to (2) people having already received that transmission to the Sadhana under the promise that they would take the Shambhala vow and Enlightened Society vow as soon as possible.
Free of charge; a heart gift to the preceptor will be collected.
Dress: Nice clothes, pins.
The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity. Further, this vow celebrates one's connection to the Shambhala community and to the practice of meditation as a way to realize that goodness more fully. It is open to people of any religion who have made such a connection to Shambhala.
The Enlightened Society Vow goes further, stating that basic goodness is the nature of society itself. Taking this vow is making a commitment to work tirelessly towards realizing a society of greater goodness.
Please note that taking the Shambhala Vow and Enlightened Society Vow are prerequisite to attend the Shambhala Sadhana transmission, May 12.
