Shambhala Membership Aspiration

Inspired by the Great Eastern Sun and the Wisdom of Shambhala,
I affirm my commitment to the Shambhala path
and the creation of Enlightened Society
as presented by the Kongma Sakyong, Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche
and the Druk Sakyong, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

I aspire to practice, study, and propagate
the disciplines of sitting meditation and meditation in action,
continually working with myself and others
with bravery, gentleness, a sense of humor, and exertion.
Through joyful engagement in the Shambhala community
and providing sustenance to my local center
I create the ground for Shambhala to flourish.

Following the path of Basic Goodness,
basking in the glory of the Great Eastern Sun,
appreciating the present moment,
and working for the benefit of others,
my life becomes an expression of the Wisdom of Shambhala.

Committing my support to carry out this vision,
I proclaim this Shambhala membership aspiration.
