Is the Oak Cliff Satellite location still open? I would like to pay a visit. :)
I love and admire Jim Carrey and this explains an awful lot of the reasons why! WOW
Is something planned for DSMC for this holiday festivity?
On this weekend of the Harvest of Peace,, let me quote the mantra,, Om Svasti Prajabhaya, the invocation for Universal Well Being. "May everyone enjoy a sense of fulfillment. May those we elect to provide leadership do so wisely. May we always ensure the welfare of the animals who nourish our bodies and the wise who nourish our minds and hearts. May everyone be content. May the rains grace the Earth when her thirst needs to be quenched. May the Earth yield abundantly and well of her produce. May the planet’s inhabitants be free from famine. May the contemplative among us have no reason to fear us. May everyone be happy. May everyone be free of illness. May everyone enjoy prosperity. May none suffer needlessly. May we distinguish the false from the real. May the darkness of ignorance give way to the light of wisdom in us. May we rid ourselves of the self-imposed limitations that prevent us from realizing our ever-expanding potential as vehicles through which the mortality of the many is understood as the immortality of the One Basic Goodness!" Om Svasti!
I was aware that the fish symbolism appeared frequently in Buddhist traditions, but didn't know the significance...I just learned... The fish is one of the eight auspicious symbols in Buddhism, accepted by all streams of Buddhism. This auspicious symbol is normally two golden fish, symbolic of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers and represents good fortune in general. The fish symbolizes living in a state of fearlessness, without danger of drowning in the ocean of sufferings, and migrating from place to place freely and spontaneously. Often shown as a pair of fish,, there is also a fertility association with this pair since one fish is male and the other female. I love this symbolism and am delighted to learn of its meaning.. And WOW,, Trungpa Rinpoche must have had this in mind when speaking of we Shambhala Buddhists as Fearless Warriors..
"Your honesty allows you to realize your goodness. You do possess Buddha in your heart." ~ Chögyam Trungpa
This is a genuine quote from the Buddhist scriptures. It’s from The Dhammapada.

The Dallas Shambhala Meditation Center is part of an international community of urban meditation and rural retreat centers founded in 1973 by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, artist, author and poet. We welcome people of any spiritual background or way of life, and offer a variety of ways to engage in Shambhala Buddhist practice. We emphasize a commitment to the practice of sitting meditation as a way to awaken our true nature and actualize it in our daily lives. We invite you to join us in this wonderful journey.

Mission: The Dallas Shambhala Meditation Center is an open spiritual community that offers meditation practice, Shambhala Buddhist teachings and contemplative arts. Through these practices, we aspire to help ourselves and others awaken the wisdom, compassion and clarity that are every person's true nature.

Let us leave a splendid legacy for our children...let us turn to them and say, this you inherit: guard it well, for it is far more precious than money...and once destroyed, nature's beauty cannot be repurchased at any price.

Wake up. Sit. Breathe. Connect within to your unshakable faith, strength, and resilience.

Life is difficult, unpredictable, and chaotic at times, understanding this completely gives you the knowing and the courage to take what life gives you, learn the lessons it has for you, and use it all to keep walking up the mountain gaining more and more confidence and strength.

Trust yourself and the timing of your life completely beautiful ones.
