Mamo Chants

February 11th—February 14th

Date details +
    Room: Shrine Hall

    Shambhala Day (this year, February 16) marks the end of one year’s cycle and the beginning of a new one. 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 period just before Shambhala Day. In particular, we are encouraged to recite the mamo chant—Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos—beginning eleven days before Shambhala Day. This chant is an elaborate protector offering by which we tune into our inherent openness, awareness and basic goodness, keep our conduct straightforward and kind, pay proper attention to the details of our lives, and reconnect with sacred outlook.

    Everyone is warmly welcome to participate in any or all of the practice sessions.
