There will be a TALK on the Protector Principle at 4:30pm on the first day of the MAMO CHANTS.
Shambhala Day- Monday, February 27 - marks the beginning of a new cycle in the year. To dispel the karmic accumulation of personal, social, and environmental chaos at the year's end, all students are encouraged to practice as much as possible in the ten-day period just before Shambhala Day. In particular, students are encouraged to recite the Mamo Chants together, beginning eleven days before Shambhala Day.
The Mamo Chant is an elaborate protector offering traditionally recited from the twentieth through the twenty-ninth days of the last lunar month of the Tibetan year. By reciting the chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook.
The day before Shambhala Day, Sunday, February 26, is considered a neutral day and is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines in preparation for the coming year.
This practice is open to all, and there is no charge.
