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
