Creating Enlightened T-shirts

warriorscriptshoot-02Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles’ own David Fraioli shares a new venture and discusses how as Shambalians we can infuse enlightened society in our everyday lives.

Sounds weird right? In Shambhala we talk about creating enlightened society and that includes everything: education, politics, religion, business, trade, technology, the arts…and fashion.

What you wear and how you wear it can either uplift and inspire yourself and others, or conversely can depress and degrade yourself and others.

So about a year ago my friend Dustin Cox (who is a graphic designer and has experience with branding and street wear) and I decided to create a line of street wear that would feature words and graphics inspired by the Shambhala principles of warriorship and basic goodness.

Words are transmissions. They are symbols and carry tremendous power and meaning. Clothes can influence how we feel about ourselves. What we choose to wear is a direct reflection of our minds. The clothes we wear affect those around us. It feels good to receive a compliment on what we are wearing….our clothing can wake people up, initiate conversation where we discover shared tastes, styles, and aesthetics. What do we want to communicate through our clothing?


We wanted our clothes to inspire creativity and curiosity about the principles of warriorship in the Shambhala tradition.
