Harvest of Peace

September 21st

    Room: Main Meditation Hall

    Like cultures all over the world, we gather to celebrate the changing of seasons. In Shambhala these are called “nyida” days from the Tibetan words nyima (sun) and dawa (moon), and they occur on, or near, the days of the equinoxes and solstices. This year our Harvest of Peace celebration falls on the actual equinox!

    In the fall we gather to celebrate the abundance that will carry us into the new year. Shambhala Centers host a Harvest of Peace as an autumn community celebration and fundraiser. It's a time of encouragement, raising each other's energy and rousing excitement for the year to come.

    In the midst of our very busy lives, we take a minute to pause, appreciate and support those things that truly enrich our lives and our whole society!

    Balancing home, work, social and spiritual lives can be very demanding. These seasonal rituals give us time to examine and re-seed our relationship with generosity and abundance which strengthens and sustains us throughout the year.
    The fundraiser is an important part of this event. This is our annual fundraiser for the Boston Shambhala center. Most of the fundraising these days is done online. Please consider making a donation.
