Treatise on Enlightened Society


May 16 / 7:00 PM - May 16 / 8:30 PM

Perhaps you heard Pasquale mention the Treatise on Enlightened Society during our community meeting, or perhaps you heard Pam Bothwell mention it at the Who Am I? weekend.  Perhaps you are hearing about it for the first time, and are curious.


During his Harvest of Peace address, in September 2012, the Sakyong, Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche, publicly introduced his Treatise on Enlightened Society and launched what he called a "cascading lung" (oral reading transmission of this text) that enables the treatise to be shared person-to-person, within and beyond the Shambhala community.


A  reading transmission (lung) of the Treatise on Enlightened Society by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will be offered on Thursday evening May 16 at 7 PM at the San Diego Shambhala Meditation Center, 3139 University Avenue.  There will be regular public sitting meditation from 6:30 -7.  At 7PM, those present may request the lung.  The reading should be completed before 8:30, and we can enjoy discussion with tea.  There is no charge, and all are welcome.


If you wish to receive the lung, please be sure to arrive before 7 PM.  Once the reading has begun the doors will close.


If parking proves difficult because of the Thursday Farmer’s Market, it is OK to park in the public library lot at the corner of 31st ST and North Park Way. (one block south and one block west of the center)
