Mamo Chants - Dön Season

February 13th—February 22nd

Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room

    This year Shambhala Day is Monday, February 24th, marking the beginning of a new annual cycle. To dispel the karmic accumulation of personal, social, and environmental chaos at the year's end, all students are encouraged to practice as much as possible in the ten-day period leading up to Shambhala Day. In particular, we are encouraged to recite the Mamo Chants together, beginning eleven days before Shambhala Day.

    Mamo Chants will happen every evening between February 13th and February 22nd from 5:30-6:45pm. The Mamo Chant is an elaborate protector offering traditionally recited from the 20th through the 29th days of the last lunar month of the Tibetan year. By reciting the chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook.

    The day before Shambhala Day—Sunday, February 23rd—is considered a neutral day and is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines in preparation for the coming year.

    This practice is open to all, and there is no charge.
