Message from the Sakyong regarding fire at SMC

Filed under Sakyong and Family, Shambhala News Service

To the Shambhala Community,

The Sakyong Wangmo and I have been staying informed of the situation at Shambhala Mountain Center. We began practicing as soon as we heard of the dangers and have received many supplications from students to hold Shambhala Mountain Center in our prayers.

Shambhala Mountain Center is a special place, infused with the blessings of our lineage and we are deeply saddened by the losses that we’ve heard about. At this poignant time, we are holding the well-being of Shambhala Mountain Center in our hearts and in our practice.

With a tender heart,

The Sakyong

Harvesting Peace in the Chinese Language – HIGHLIGHT

Yeachin Tsai has kindly translated Sakyong Mipham’s 2010 Harvest of Peace letter into Chinese. 2010年「和平的秋收」薩姜米龐仁波切關中信函 祈願文 在心的宇宙一切皆為可能; 在心的空隙一切皆盡涵容; 在珍貴的身體內,光芒四射的能量搏動; 在世界靈動變化的的巧合裡,吉祥永遠準備就緒。這是多傑札都(創巴仁波切)的贈禮。讓我們這些無愧的香巴拉人每天早上以一顆廣袤的心智、難以稱量的大心、以及一個充滿意向的身體覺醒。讓我們創造一個具有和平與尊嚴、並以吉祥嚴飾的世界。 聆聽香巴拉總裁理查雷奧克(Richard Reoch)的開示,與馬克威利(Mark Whaley)閱讀薩姜的書信全文: 信函內容如下: 我希望你們都有一個深刻美好的「和平的秋收」日。和平是香巴拉活動的基石。正如偉大的聖雄甘地所說:「你想見到世界改變,必須自己成為那改變。」在這個唯物主義氾濫的年代,我們香巴拉人必得欣然接受此一箴言。因為當此充斥無厭的自我滿足之時、我們的手指總是預備好去指責別人的錯誤。因此經由這純粹的英勇行徑,我們必須振奮起信心,確認我們的本初善 (basic goodness)。 continue
