    Room: Shrine Hall

    We invite all of our members and friends to a special event on Tuesday April 16 at 7pm.   The Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has composed  a very heartfelt letter The Birth of Society for our community in anticpation of his book The Shambhala Principle:Discovering Humanity's Hidden Treasure

    In the letter the Sakyong says "the book centers around the question, Do we as humans believe and trust in the basic goodness of humanity, as well as society?  Not only does it identify the question of human nature as the most important global issue that we face today,  it also offers the principle of basic goodness as a way of addressing our personal and social challenges.  Like many of you, I have questioned and doubted the themes of basic goodness and enlightened society. This new book invites the reader to share a journey of reflecting on these core principles" 

    We will be reading this letter and inviting a discussion.   Please join us.  Light refreshments will follow.
