Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
Harvest of Peace Address
Dorje Denma Ling, Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, Canada
September 22, 2007

I humbly bow before the assembly of the greater sangha. I’m delighted to be here at Dorje Denma Ling, where for the last couple of days we have been practicing and deepening our understanding. It seems like an appropriate place to [a baby wails] – yes, exactly – “proclaim the truth.” I am particularly delighted to be joined today by Khandro Tseyang, who has gotten more and more used to all of us. [Laughs] Her father is an emanation of Gesar’s older brother, so I have to be very careful. Hopefully she will address us later.

As we convene today in mind and spirit, I would like to take this opportunity to recall and reflect on the purpose of calling ourselves Shambhala. Coming together as an international community, what is it that we do? In this season of transition, heading into winter – at least here in the northern hemisphere – is a deepening process.
