Compassion Practice For The People Of Nepal says
The Shambhala Meditation Center of Atlanta will be open tomorrow, Saturday, May 2, 2015, 3:00-4:00pm for compassion practice for the people of Nepal.
Please come to the Diamond Temple shrine room for this practice session.
Here is a message from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche:

To Shambhala Centres and Groups Worldwide,

I write to you today with a full heart of compassion for the victims of the devastating earthquake in Nepal. Reports continue to flood the media, telling us of the innumerable children who now find themselves without parents, the broken families without homes, and the isolated villages without access to aid.

In the midst of this disaster, please join me in meditation and prayer for the people of Nepal. Let us gather in silence to offer our wishes for healing and wellbeing, bearing witness to the suffering of our Nepalese brothers and sisters.

The Sakyong Wangmo and I would like to offer our centres around the world as quiet and sacred spaces to bear witness and offer compassion to the suffering in Nepal, and other places, such as Baltimore, experiencing turmoil. Please open your doors to the people in your cities and neighborhoods so that we may unite as a global community in this challenging time.

On Saturday, May 2nd, please include sessions of sitting meditation, sessions of the compassionate practice of Tong Len (sending and taking), and walking meditation or shamatha yoga throughout the day. Local teachers and leaders can decide on a schedule that works well, or integrate this into whatever you may already have planned for that day. Keep it simple.

With blessings,

The Sakyong
