Five Miles Away from SMC

Staff members from the Shambhala Mountain Center performed fire mitigation work on the property northwest of Fort Collins Friday afternoon, June 15, 2012.  The buddhist center is about ten miles away from the current fire boundary. The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya is located on the property.

An international Shambhala team visited Shambhala Mountain Center on Tuesday June 19th to visit the small core of staffers still on the land and lead prayers and practices for the countless beings – people, creatures and the environment – affected by the huge High Park Fire.

Six short videos of the visit, showing the situation on the land, the preparations being made by the staff, and practices inside the Stupa, are now posted on Shambhala Mountain Center’s YouTube page.


They include an interview with Center Director Jon Barbieri about the efforts being made to protect the sacred sites and objects, as well as the outpouring of support from around the world.

    Thinking of all of you and Shambhala Mountain Center at this time of crisis. My time there was precious, so I appreciate all you are doing to protect it.
    Yours in the Sangha,
