The warrior’s duty is to generate warmth and compassion for others.

The Shambhala Network is a new website that connects the Shambhala community through email, groups and friends.

1 Login The first step is to login. Login with your Shambhala Account at right.
2 Take a Tour Each section of the site has a tour. Click the 'Home Page Tour' at top right to get started. (Hint: login first)
3 Participate Update your profile, connect with friends, browse groups, maybe join a conversation.
When organizing working groups, both in Centres and across the mandala, just build the group and start working on your sangha projects. No more hunting down email addresses or managing them when they change - people change their own email address via the Shambhala Database. Archiving documents (the "Files" tab) is an easy way to post minutes, PDFs, images, etc. And the "Docs" tab allows you to collaborate on documents -- with multiple group members participating in putting a document together. We've just begun to understand the full use of the Network... Greg Heffron, Bellingham
