Shambhala Day


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 Shambhala Day is on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and ushers in the year of the Water Tiger.

The theme of the 2022 event is CELEBRATING BEAUTY. In Shambhala, connecting with the five senses is an important tool for developing greater appreciation for the world around us. This year’s broadcast will also incorporate various Contemplative Arts practices that will inspire and uplift, helping us to create more softness and curiosity in our daily life and move beyond limiting beliefs or patterns. 


This year’s event will also include a line-up of “Shambhala New Year Programming” that occurs in the days before Shambhala Day. Click here to learn more.
