Shambala Meditation Center of New York


In Bhutan, one of the last sovereign Buddhist kingdoms, ancient ritual dances and traditional arts are handed down through generations, representing hundreds of years of knowledge and spiritual practice.

When six monks from Thimphu Tashi Chodzong Monastery located in Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital, made an unprecedented trip to the West to bring attention to the culture and artistry of the kingdom, their hosts, the Shambhala Center in conjunction with the Asia Society, called upon EqualShot for an outreach and communications plan.

EqualShot was able to successfully draw media attention (and crowds) to the visit, including lectures, sacred dances, a ritual sand mandala demonstration, and teachings by His Holiness Ngawang Tenzin Rinpoche, considered to be the highest reincarnated Buddhist lama in Bhutan
