開示於香巴拉日（藏曆新年）2018年 - 科羅拉多州博德市，
"In the dark sky, the moon comes out, and it is soothing. Can we, in the darkness, be that moonbeam of cool, sentient kindness? Can we manifest that?
I believe we can, and it has happened. That is the inspiration of Shambhala: a community that, in the darkness, is able to find the light within and shine it.
May we be a community that is able to be kind to each other. May we create a culture based on this. As a Shambhala community, may we extend this out to the world. May the moonlight of kindness extend around the whole world, soothing the pain and suffering. May this come from the core of our being."
- Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
