Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has identified the Shambhala Sadhana as a key element on the path of Shambhala warriorship.  In this special talk with Acharya Dan Hessey, we will discuss how the Shambhala Sadhana opens us to drala and works with our doubt and hesitation about basic goodness in ourselves, others, and society.
