Resources for Helping our Sangha to Understand Current Events in Shambhala

We have put together a virtual reading room for our community that contains some links to letters from Shambhala governance and the Sakyong, news articles, helpful blog posts and teachings. We will continue to update this page with new information as it becomes available. This list is not intended to be exhaustive.

We offer this with broken hearts as we hold our sangha in kindness. Our intent is to remain in a place of openness and not-knowing, to listen to our community, and to try our best to pass on any information that we receive. These are confusing times for everyone.
