Sakyong speaks to Orlando tragedy

flowersOn behalf of the entire Shambhala Community I express profound sadness and pain toward the brutal killings in Orlando this past weekend. As we now know, Florida has suffered the deadliest mass shooting in American history. My heart breaks for everyone affected by this tragedy. I want to especially acknowledge the pain of the LGBT community – a community that has faced ignorant violence and discrimination for generations.

Those who have suffered are in my practice and I encourage you to hold them in your heart as well. We should dedicate our practice to the aspiration that all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, race or religion, are able to experience their basic goodness and peace. May the threat of gun violence lessen, and may all beings be safe. We send love and courage to all who are suffering and to all who are in fear.

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
