Inspired by the vision of Shambhala,

to create enlightened society,

I hereby affirm my commitment to the path of meditation

as presented by the Kongma Sakyong, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche and the

with bravery, gentleness,

a sense of humor, and exertion.

Following the path of basic goodness,

basking in the glory of the Great Eastern Sun,

and working for the benefit of others,

I express the binding wisdom of Shambhala.

Committing my support to carry out this vision,

I hereby take this Shambhala oath.
