My Offering Bowl

IMG_3975“The history and legend of Shambhala is based upon a great community that was able to reach a higher level of consciousness. This community could occur because its individual members participated fully in creating a culture of kindness, generosity, and courage.” ~Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

I am so grateful for the Shambhala community and the teachings, and the opportunity attend ESA in an effort to further deepen my own practice of kindness, generosity and courage.

In the Buddhist tradition it is customary to request alms or offerings. For most of us, Buddhist or not, that’s not always easy, but doing so is a beautiful way for both donor and recipient to engage in the practice of generosity. Having participated from both sides of the alms bowl, I’m not sure which opens my heart more.

I humbly present my Offering Bowl Petition to assist me with attending Enlightened Society Assembly at Karme Choling in August.

Any amount is so very helpful and good thoughts are also very much appreciated!
