Happy Memories of Children’s Day

Filed under Scene and Heard

Cheerful Season’s Greetings from the Shambhala Times!

Traditionally, Shambhalians recognize and celebrate the changing of the seasons on Nyida Days. One of the most beloved of these celebrations is Children’s Day, which comes at the winter solstice, celebrated this year on December 21st. We hope you enjoy this selection of images from past celebrations from the last few years, and encourage you to send photos and descriptions of your home or center events for 2016 to [email protected] . Share the joy of Children’s Day!
