CELEBRATING OUR 3OTH YEAR
Gampo Abbey is a Western Buddhist monastery in the Shambhala tradition in Nova Scotia, Canada. Founded by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1983, it is a lineage institution of Shambhala and a corporate division of the Vajradhatu Buddhist Church of Canada.
Under the spiritual direction of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the spiritual head of Shambhala International, Gampo Abbey is guided by our abbot the Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche and our principal teacher Acharya Pema Chödrön.
Celebrating 30 years of Life and Friendship at Gampo Abbey
See our new visual tribute (click on 'YouTube') to life at Gampo Abbey during our first 30 years. In addition to many rarely seen images from our archives, we have an audio track featuring a dharma song by senior Shambhala teacher and composer Winfield (Binny) Clark as well as another track by the Gampo Abbey choir. The tribute has been created and produced by award winning documentary filmaker and longtime Shambhala practitioner Kent Martin. The soundtrack was edited by Jascha Hoffman, a songwriter and journalist in Brooklyn, NY.
