    Shambhala Day 2021:  Year of the Iron Ox

    The Shambhala community comes together in many ways – to practice, learn, serve others… and to celebrate! By joining spiritual practice with the practicalities, challenges and joys of everyday life, we aspire to create a society that expresses the dignity of human experience.

    Based on the traditional Tibetan new year’s celebration of Losar, the day is calculated according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and is associated with a particular zodiac animal and element. The year 2021 is represented by the Iron Ox. We aspire to enter this new year with the spirit of trust in the basic goodness that connects us all.

    Let’s join together to celebrate Shambhala Day 2021 on Friday February 12, 2021. The following are opportunities for SMCNY to practice and to celebrate. Join us for any or all of the events.
