Shambhala Day 2020: Year of the Iron Mouse

Monday, February 24th
From 6 to 9:30 PM 

Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism.

The mouse is the first symbol in the Asian astrological cycle, and is therefore associated with newness and beginnings. On this New Year’s Day, we can aspire to enter 2020 and Shambhala New Year with the spirit of a fresh start and a renewed trust in the basic goodness that connects us.

Based on the traditional Tibetan New Year’s celebration of Losar, the day is calculated astrologically according to the Tibetan lunar calendar and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.

Our annual holidays mark the rhythm of our shared experience and culture and provide the opportunity for us to join together. Shambhala Day is particularly associated with reflecting upon the year that has passed and setting our intentions for the future.
