Shambhala Day 2018

February 16th (2018)

Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room

    Based on the traditional Tibetan celebration of Losar, Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of our community.  Shambhala Day is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through feasting, conviviality and elegance with the community.

    We will start our celebration with a short practice, then enjoy a catered dinner, welcome our new members, distribute Practice Books and hear the Sakyong’s address. As many of you know, Shambhala Day is traditionally the day for expressions of generosity to the seat of Shambhala located in Halifax, also referred to as the Center of the Mandala. Please bring your checkbook if you are so inclined!

    The Dana bowl will be out to accept donations to defray the cost of dinner, but your ability to pay is not a reason to miss the festivities. Everyone, please plan to help with clean up and bring a to-go box for possible leftovers.

    Please RSVP to Maria ([email protected]) and let us know what your dietary preferences are (i.e., vegetarian, vegan, omnivore, gluten-free, etc.) so we can purchase food accordingly.
