Yes, the badge was made : it was LM light-blue and white, really pretty too.

I don't know where it went. Perhaps we should ask Vesha (he's the one who made it).

Could we get that set up soon ? :cheer:

It's here Maitre (see a few posts above), also I've downloaded it to my local computer for when it's ready to be set up. ;)

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

Not that we need them, but I found myself imagining these as silicon badges like this:



I know, I know. I'm just having fun.

These are lovely, Vesha. Thanks for your work.

Actually, I'd considered crafting them on pin backs, with their resemblance to service ribbons

Steam, lol, the Shambhala Buddhists believe the Warrior Path is the path to spirituality. So, military is a misnomer, though they consider it to be how they're viewed. It's a group of Warriors. Put it that way. I think they want to be sort of a "renaissance" of what soldiers/warriors could be. A military made up of the enlightened? Would be a whole different set of rules. Of course, anymore discussion on that and we go into off topic land. hahah.

Here's more info:
"The Dorje Kasung is a group that was formed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche to support the transmission of the Shambhala teachings by helping create an appropriate environment for them to be taught in. The Dorje Kasung accomplish this by providing a gentle and uplifted presence at teaching events, providing security services, providing driving and personal assistance to the teachers, and working with any issues of conflict or health that may arise in the community.

The training and model of the Dorje Kasung is based on military forms, such as hierarchy, uniforms, and drills. The purpose of utilizing the military format is not to propagate war, but to take advantage of the discipline and energy of military forms to embody and communicate compassion.[citation needed] The practice of Dorje Kasungship is founded on the mahayana Buddhist principle of compassionate action, and inspired by the vajrayana Buddhist emphasis on working directly with the energy of neurosis and transforming it into wisdom. Thus, through engaging directly with military forms, they aspire to fulfill the vision expressed in their motto, "Victory Over War".[citation needed]" - from the Shambhala Wiki
