February 11th

Date details +


    Cheerful Shambhala Day!

    Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year, which is one of the most important days of the Shambhala tradition. 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. This year, Shambhala Day falls on February 10th, as we begin the year of the Wood Dragon.

    We will celebrate as a local community on Sunday, February 11th following the Jinpa Solidarity Sit, from 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM. The celebration will include a lhasang, potluck lunch, two Retirement Oaths, two Oaths of Office, and recognition of new members. Children welcome! Please bring a dish to share.
