Message from the Sakyong Wangmo

Earth Day was the most beautiful day. The sun was shining and there was a feeling of spring in the air. There was a mixture of the local Boulder community and the Shambhala community and everyone was in a good mood. The atmosphere felt like a festival with children, runners and families. Overall, the day reminded me of a Midsummer’s Day celebration. This Earth Day race was the perfect environment for the release of the Sakyong’s new book, Running with the Mind of Meditation.

I was very excited since this was going to be my first race. At the same time I was also nervous, but I had a strong feeling I could finish. As I approached the finish line there was a tremendous cheer from the sangha. I felt like I was running the Boston Marathon. Best of all was seeing the Sakyong’s face as he and Jetsun Drukmo, held high in his arms, welcomed me at the end of the race. I was so happy for him for launching his book, and for how beneficial this book is going to be for the world.

I send you all my love,

Sakyong Wangmo, Dechen Choying Sangmo
