Harvest of Peace Address 2009

Harvest of Peace Address by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Peace is the only way that we are going to survive as a human race and planet. The Dorje Dradul had this in mind many years ago when he left India and came West. He had this wisdom and felt like it needed to be shared and propagated. Now, almost like a time capsule, these teachings have come about. And I feel that we ourselves as Shambhalians need to deepen what we have. We have a tremendous treasure trove of teachings, methods, and practices that we need to delve into.

At this time, it is obvious that the world will become more and more crowded. There’s more speed. There’s more anxiety. There’s more intensity. The tendency is to become less compassionate, less gentle, more aggressive, more prideful. So we are trying to counter that, saying that at the basic level, what has occurred is that human beings as a whole don’t trust their inherent basic goodness. The teachings and practice of warriorship emphasize that we need to be strong and see our own goodness and how we can share that with others. That is at the heart of the teachings. All of us, no matter what we are doing in our lives, need to understand that and feel that.

We actually have to reveal and manifest it. As Shambhalians, we have to ourselves be gentle, powerful, glorious warriors with a sense of celebration.
