This year Shambhala Day is Saturday, February 10th, marking the beginning of a new annual cycle. 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 leading up to Shambhala Day. In particular, we 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 20th through the 29th 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 - Friday, February 20th - 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. Donations are welcomed and appreciated.

Curious about why this practice is done at this time of year? Would you like a refresher on protector principle and why it is important? Come to the talk and discussion on Sunday February 28th at 11am. Link HERE. The talk will in-person only, however, it will be recorded and added to this webpage.
