The Sakyong Returns to South America
The Kongma Sakyong has returned to South America, presiding over an 8-day long Garchen retreat with 170 Chileans, Brazilians, and a few North Americans in Cuncumen Chile. Following the retreat, the Sakyong gave a public talk in Santiago and addressed the Shambhala community.
Acharyas Eve Rosenthal and Fleet Maull, six shastris and senior teachers supported the retreat. Many young people and families with children attended, doing chants in their native languages. The Sakyong proclaimed his intention and commitment to return in two years to enter students into Sacred World Assembly and Rigden Abhisheka, and within a few more years a Scorpion Seal.
