    In Shambhala, this is the time of the year when we focus on protector practice and, in particular, on the Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamosliturgy. Protector practice at the end of the year is a way to gather and direct our energy toward overcoming obstacles as we conclude one year and move into the next. By concluding one year well, we support a good start for the next year.    

    To dispel the karmic accumulation of personal, social, and environmental chaos at the year's end, all students are encouraged to practice as much as possible in the ten-day period just before Shambhala Day. In particular, students are encouraged to recite the Mamo Chants together beginning eleven days before Shambhala Day.

    The Mamo Chant is an elaborate protector offering traditionally recited from the twentieth through the twenty-ninth days of the last lunar month of the Tibetan year. By reciting the chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook.

    The day before Shambhala Day, Thursday February 15 is considered neutral and is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines (and the Center) in preparation for the coming year.

    This practice is open to all.
