Patronage of the Sakyong's Deep Retreat

 

The Sakyong, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche, will be returning to deep retreat at the beginning of October. Now that he is preparing to return to deep retreat we invite you to make a personal contribution and further connection to the Sakyong by being a patron of this phase of his retreat.

 

You will recall that hundreds of Shambhalians served as patrons for all or part of a day when the Sakyong was in deep retreat in Nepal in May. If you would like to make an offering at this point in his retreat, it would be in the form of taking on the role of patron for part or all of one of the days from the beginning of October until the end of February. In accord with traditional ritual, the names of the patrons will be read aloud daily.

 

  • For $150 you can be a patron of 1/4 of a day
  • For $300 you can be a patron of a 1/2 day
  • For $600 or more you can serve as a patron for a full day of the Sakyong’s retreat

 

These calculations take into account the total overhead for the retreat, which includes daily food, travel, and housing expenses for the Sakyong, Sakyong Wangmo, Jetsun Drukmo, and five court staff. Individuals who would like to work with their family, delek, or local kasung squad to make an offering as a group are encouraged to do so. If you wish, you can dedicate your contribution, not only to the well-being of the Sakyong's retreat, but also to any special person or event in your life. If you have any questions please contact Shambhala’s Development Officer Lodro Rinzler.

We are delighted to announce that the entirety of the Sakyong's retreat has been sponsored. Individuals who wish to make a donation to form a karmic connection to the Sakyong's practice can still become a general patron. Your donation will go into the Our Future fund and your name and dedication will still be read aloud to the Sakyong during this phase of his retreat.
