    Shambhala Day is our community celebration of the New Year (Losar) in the Tibetan tradition. In 2020, we usher in the Year of the Iron Mouse on Monday, February 24. The date is calculated astrologically according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. 

    All are welcome! We will begin our celebration by joining the live Shambhala Day broadcast from Karmê Chöling. It will include worldwide group practice, sharing Shambhala culture, and greetings from throughout our international community.

    No registration required for this event.

    Shambhala Day is when we offer financial support to Shambhala Global Services. Click here for a comprehensive overview of the many ways they support the community. They rely on our financial support to offer these services.

    Donation slips will be available during our celebrations on Monday, February 24 and Sunday, March 1. You may leave your gift (cash, check or credit card #) in the donation box at the Center. You may also donate ahead of time by credit card at https://shambhala.org/giving/

    Because Losar is on a weekday this year and some cannot attend, we will continue our community celebration on the following weekend, February 29th and March 1st.
