Social Transformation and the Shambhala Sadhana
with Acharya Daniel Hessey
I have composed a sadhana known as the Shambhala Sadhana that helps us, through the powerful practice of meditation, deepen our insight and feeling of basic goodness and enlightened society.
–The Kongma Sakyong, Jampal Trinley Dradul
In January 2011, toward the end of his year in retreat, the Kongma Sakyong composed the Shambhala Sadhana as a way to celebrate and strengthen our understanding of basic goodness and enlightened society. This remarkable practice also serves as a way to bind the Shambhala community in kinship, vision, loyalty, and delight.
Acaharya Dan Hessey will talk about the sadhana's capacity to transform society.
Prerequisite: For practitioners who have received the lung (reading transmission) for this sadhana.
Acharya Hessey has suggested that we have an elegant Shambhala Sadhana feast on Saturday.
(a) arrive at 5:45 on Saturday to help set up
(b) offer $15 or what you can to cover the costs of the feast.
