Shambhala Buddhists welcome the 3rd generation

Drukmo Yeshe Sarasvati Ziji Mukpo born today at the IWK


Congratulations are in order. CBC:
The queen of the Shambhala Buddhist community gave birth to a baby girl Wednesday morning in Halifax.
Her name is Drukmo Yeshe Sarasvati Ziji Mukpo, which means Lady Dragon Wisdom. I don't know what her arrival means, if anything, for the schism that has developed between the old American hippies who followed Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche to Halifax in 1986, and the younger generation that follows the more doctrinaire teachings of Trungpa's son, and the Lady Dragon's father, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

The old guard brought a lot of good to Halifax, and their dissent continues to sometime boil over the top in the Shambhala community, such as with the recent establishment of Radio Free Shambala. As of today, however, the dissenters have not commented on the arrival of a new princess.
