Feb 9, 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey

 

FireMonkeyFaceShambhala Day marks the beginning of the new year, according to the Tibetan lunar calendar and is the most important holiday of the Shambhala mandala.

Shambhala Day is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through feasting, conviviality, and elegance. Many local Shambhala Centres plan activities throughout the week following the New Year’s Day. Each year, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche addresses the worldwide Shambhala Community via a live online broadcast with centres and groups in more than 25 countries around the world.

Year after year on the monkey’s face a monkey face.
