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 according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.

 

It is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through feasting, conviviality, and elegance. Shambhala is an ancient tradition that is rooted in the longing we all have to be completely authentic and to live in a society that cultivates our true expression as human beings. 


This is also the time when members of the Shambhala community are encouraged to make a financial donation to Shambhala in order to help support our local center and our worldwide community.


You are invited to join the San Antonio Shambhala community in welcoming in the new Tibetan year – that of the Earth Pig – a time to focus on the qualities of being trustworthy, of simplicity and honesty! Perfect timing for this tumultuous period. This Sunday event is a community celebration.
