The foundation teachings on the dignities (Tiger, Lion, Garuda and Dragon) are integral to the Shambhala path at all levels. Together we will explore the qualities of meek, perky, outrageous and inscrutable as well as foundation teachings on basic goodness and enlightened society. This is an opportunity for practitioners of all levels who have received this text to explore how we can deepen our understanding of this profound teaching and bring its wisdom into our everyday lives.


In addition to the “Letter of the Black Ashe” root text, we will be readingå “The Dignities of Shambhala: A Sourcebook for the Sacred Path of the Warrior” 2003 edition. All students who have received “The Letter of Black Ashe” text, which is given in the Sacred Path of the Warrior Drala weekend, are welcome to participate.
