Shambhala Meditation Centre Nelson, BC Photo


The photo was taken January 22nd, 2014 at 3:40 P.M. Painting and photo were done/taken from the bottom of the ground floor stairs, looking up.

You'll find this stairway leading up to the Shambhala Meditation Centre on the south side of Baker Street, within the furthest west door of the 1897 three storey Lawrence’s Hardware Building, immediately east of the old Hudson's Bay Building, now the downtown Mall.

Established in 1974, the Kootenay Shambhala Meditation Centre is a nonprofit, volunteer-run part of Shambhala, an international community of more than 200 meditation centres and groups founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now led by his son and lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

At our community's core is the Shambhala Buddhist path. Unique in the world of Western Buddhism, this path combines the teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism with the Shambhala tradition of living an uplifted life, fully engaged with the world.

Our centre, located on the top floor of a heritage building in the heart of downtown Nelson, is home to a wonderfully diverse and vibrant group of about 40 members. We share a commitment to the path of awakening and the inspiration to create a society where people appreciate their innate goodness (which is personified as the Primordial Rigden, shown above right) and aspire to express it in every aspect of their lives.
