Main Contact: David Sharp  Email  (Phone: 7022586489)
Notes and Events:

The SGI is based on the teachings and philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism, which places the highest emphasis on the sanctity of life. Members seek, through their practice of Buddhism, to develop the ability to live with confidence, to create value in any circumstance and to contribute to the well-being of friends, family and community.

Our philosophy is rooted in the concept of "human revolution," a process of inner transformation through Buddhist practice. It is a process that leads us to develop our character and to act not only for our personal fulfillment but also for the betterment of society.

We believe that happiness is being able to experience profound joy that comes from never being defeated by any problem in life. In fact, we use life’s challenges as catalysts to deepen and expand our inner lives. True happiness results from our efforts to manifest our highest potential — wisdom, compassion, courage and vitality.

The SGI-USA is the American branch of the SGI network, with more than 2,600 neighborhood discussion groups and nearly 100 SGI-USA centers throughout the country.

The core activity for all SGI-USA members is the neighborhood discussion meeting. These informal gatherings bring people together for Buddhist prayer, study, sharing and discussion of ways Buddhism can be applied to the challenges of daily living.

Shambhala Mountain Center is a mountain valley retreat located on 600 acres in northern Colorado, and home to The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya Which Liberates Upon Seeing. Since 1971 the Center has offered hundreds of programs on Buddhist meditation, yoga and other contemplative disciplines. Tamed by over thirty years of use as a contemplative retreat, Shambhala Mountain Center is a place where one of the basic truths of Buddhism—that people can be profoundly open to the wisdom of the present moment—is always readily available.

Shambhala is sometimes likened to a spiritual umbrella, a protective canopy under which many people with diverse needs and aspirations can gather to benefit from teachings and practices that can awaken their inherent wisdom and compassion. This vital role has both an inner and outer aspect: training individuals in our tradition, and connecting to other consonant groups in society. 

On the occasion of receiving the Living Peace award, His Holiness the Dalai Lama spoke to the Sakyong, the spiritual director of Shambhala,  about the vital importance of furthering Shambhala\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s emerging role in the world. In particular, for Shambhala Mountain Center to be a venue where the great wisdom traditions of the world can gather and share their unique gifts of wisdom and compassion.

Learn how to meditate, delve into the wisdom teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, stretch beyond your limits in a yoga retreat, or practice mindfulness in one of our contemplative arts programs. And if R&R is what you are seeking, consider one of our relaxing, rejuvenating Retreat & Renewal weekendsAdvanced Buddhist Retreats are offered along with a multitude of other programs, including conference and group retreat rentals.

Shiwa Center for Peace

Teacher: Bhkang Tulku Rinpoche  
Spiritual Director: Bhkang Tulku Rinpoche  Email  (Phone: 843-971-6095)
Notes and Events:

The key to true peace and happiness in the world lies no further than in our own hearts and minds.

Shiwa, named after the Tibetan word for “peace,” is a non-profit charitable organization, whose purpose is to assist in the development of genuine compassion and wisdom in the world. Shiwa will help to nurture the natural inborn potential for peace and happiness which is present in all of us.

Shiwa provides a non-denominational facility where participants may attend teachings, classes and seminars on a variety of topics related to personal and community development. The facility provides a location for spiritual growth through teachings, meditation and quiet reflection away from the distractions of the everyday world. At Shiwa, our wish is to help all people in realizing and following a path towards unlimited compassion, deep understanding and true happiness.

Most people face a common situation, where there is some level of discontent and a sense of confusion regarding how to find the source of true happiness within the complexity of living in a modern world. The common response is to try to overcome unhappiness by seeking material solutions outside of ourselves. In reality, the key to true peace and happiness for our inner selves, as well as in the world, lies within our own hearts and minds. All human beings contain the potential to generate compassion and gain wisdom, uncovering the true peace and wisdom that lies within. It is simply a matter of cultivating that potential – nurturing it, developing it, and implementing it in our daily lives.

Shiwa offers the opportunity to do focused retreat and receive instruction in spiritual and meditation practices. Spiritual counseling will also be available. The Shiwa Center welcomes all, as we gather to gain access to the great wisdom traditions of the world as well as modern psychology and science.

Shiwa’s founder, Bhakhang Tulku Rinpoche, has been teaching at the Center for Inner Knowing in Atlanta and has also taught in North Carolina and Virginia. He is a Tibetan Lama from Drepung Monastery in India, and is uniquely qualified to provide leadership and advice in the areas of human development and meditation. He also provides a unique perspective on bringing the timeless wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism into the modern world in a manner open and accessible to all, regardless of their religious or personal beliefs. Through participation in the Shiwa Center, people will learn to become their own teachers, and in turn, living examples of peace and compassion.

The core essence of all wisdom traditions is love and compassion. Shiwa opens its doors to teachers from diverse backgrounds and traditions to present their insights and perspectives on development of inner and outer peace. By focusing on the unity and oneness that underlies surface differences, Rinpoche hopes to dissolve divisions and narrow outlooks that often stand in the way of our fullest potential as individuals, as communities, and across the globe.

We live in a time of great opportunity: it is up to us to choose how we wish to spend our lives on this wondrous earth. May Shiwa play its part in infusing us all with peace, compassion, and love for all beings.
