Transcript of the Shambhala Day Address 2014
from The Sakyong Wangmo, Dechen Choyong Sangmo

The Sakyong Wangmo: Cheerful Shambhala Day, everyone, and Happy Losar. Tashi Delek. I am delighted to be here with the Sakyong and our two daughters, Lady Konchok, and members of the family who have gathered on this most auspicious day, the first day of the New Year, the Year of Horse, which is a year of action. This is naturally connected with our ancestor, the enlightened King Gesar of Ling of Tibet, who is an embodiment of dignity and accomplishment.

Since our culture is based on basic goodness and enlightened society, this is the year to connect to the horse energy of raising our lungta, especially in continuing to fulfill the wishes of the Sakyong, who has asked all of us to expand Shambhala, making it strong and of benefit to the world. So I encourage all of you to raise your lungta, which I believe begins at home. How we live and conduct ourselves is the basis of our personal vitality and helps us be socially beneficial. I feel that we, as a community, have raised our windhorse and are in fact kinder, more cheerful, and more welcoming. This, I feel, is a true sign of genuine warriorship.

In this light, we owe gratitude to the Sakyong for continuing to inspire us. So I would like all of us to raise our collective windhorse and enter this New Year with the energy and spirit of our positive action. This feels like yet another important year for our community, therefore let’s begin this together.

So, Cheerful Shambhala Day again. Happy Losar. And please enjoy and celebrate with your family, friends and delek gatherings. Happy Losar and Cheerful Shambhala Day! [Cheers. Applause.] We need to say it loudly today, and cheerfully!
