Shambhala Day Celebration - Year of the Earth Dog

February 16th

Date details +

    Cheerful Shambhala Day 

    Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year, which is one of the most important traditions of the Shambhala Mandala. Based on the traditional Tibetan New Year's celebration of Losar, the day is calculated astrologically according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.

    Shambhala Day is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through revelry, conviviality, elegance and pomp. As is customary, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche addresses 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.

    Since this celebration falls on a weekday, we will have both morning and evening festivities open for you to attend.

    More details on times and activities coming soon! 

    Everyone in the extended community, friends and family are welcome.

    Location: Seattle Shambhala Center, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle. We remain considerate of our neighbors in regards to parking. If you are driving, please do not park on 31st. Thank you.
