Shambhala DaySunday, March 2, 10 AM - 2 PM
Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the Year of the Wood Horse and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. As is customary, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will address the worldwide Shambhala community on Shambhala Day through an online hook-up, which includes centers and groups from six continents and over thirty countries around the world. All are welcome.
Shambhala Sadhana Practice and Feast
By special permission of the Sakyong, this practice is open to everyone for this occasion. Feasts in a practice always include a torma (some kind of rich cake), meat, and some kind of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. During the event we will invite everyone to make their annual Montpelier Shambhala Meditation Group donations and pledges, along with traditional Shambhala Day fundraising for the Shambhala mandala.
If you plan to attend please RSVP to julie.kaija -at- gmail.com. Please also let her know if you will need to borrow a copy of the Shambhala Sadhana liturgy.
