“By taking these vows, humanity will have in its hands the tools to bring about good human society.” — The Sakyong, Jampal Trinley Dradül

This short commentary by the Sakyong explains the relationship between the Shambhala vow and the enlightened society vow, as well as their overall relationship to the refuge and bodhisattva vows. It was written shortly after the two new vows were introduced in Autumn 2011.

As the Sakyong writes, “On reflecting about the nature of the two vows, a further explanation was needed: an understanding of the character and purpose of each vow and how it interfaces with the great vows of refuge and bodhisattva. . . . May it help inspire the next generation of Shambhalians.”

Contents include:

  • Introduction
  • The Refuge & Bodhisattva Vows
  • The Shambhala Vow
  • The Enlightened Society Vow
  • Natural Hierarchy
  • Conclusion
