    The Year of the Earth Boar 
    (THOUGHTFUL, GENEROUS, GOOD-HUMORED)
    with a Celebration of Sangha

    Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism.

    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.

    We'll gather as a community in a way that is genuine, earthy, and real to express the richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage, our appreciation and connection to each other, and the inherent worthiness and wisdom that binds us together.

    Our day of celebration includes practices, feasts, community recognitions, blessings, and connecting with the worldwide Shambhala community!
