Shambhala Day - Year of the Iron Mouse

February 24th

Date details +

    Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. 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. This year we welcome the Year of the Iron Mouse.
