    Room: Main Shrine Room

    Mamo Chants nightly from February 5-14, 2018    5:30 - 7:00pm

    Shambhala Day is on Friday, February 16. This marks the beginning of a new cycle according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. In Shambhala, this marks our New Year!

    During the ten-day period just prior to Shambhala Day, all students are encouraged to practice as much as possible in order to dispel the karmic accumulation of personal, social, and environmental chaos at the year's end.

    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 at the end of the last lunar month of the Tibetan year.

    By reciting this chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook. It is recommended not to begin a new project during this time, and if possible, not to travel.

    The day before Shambhala Day, Thursday, February 15, is considered a neutral day. This is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines in preparation for the coming year.

    From February 5-14, from 5:30-7:00pm, we will practice the mamo chants at the Boulder Shambhala Center instead of the usual evening sitting period.

    This practice is open to all, and there is no charge.
