The Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche encouraged us as a community to have a deep connection with the seasons and the natural world. Shambhalians world-wide celebrate the Nyida Days on each solstice and equinox, so there are four Nyida Day celebrations in all. The name Nyida – Nyi for Nyima (sun) joined with “da” for Dawa (moon) – truly reflects the sense of these holidays, as they are meant to commemorate the ongoing dance of sun, moon and earth as reflected in the changing seasons.

Midsummer Day Celebration was initiated by the Druk Sakyong in the late 1970’s as one of the Nyida Days, and is held in acknowledgment of the Summer solstice – the longest day of the year.
