Great Eastern Sun rises 

Learn about Nova Scotia's Shambhala community, past and present, at the Canadian Immigration Museum at Pier 21.

Shambhala's history revealed at Pier 21.
  • Shambhala's history revealed at Pier 21.

The fine folks at Pier 21 want to give you a better understanding exactly why our province came to be the world's Shambhala nerve centre. Thanks to the museum's Community Presents program, aimed at celebrating unique traditions, a new exhibit Great Eastern Sun: The Shambhala Community in Nova Scotia honours the 25th anniversary of founder Chögyam Trungpa's death with a colourful and interactive history lesson. "The Shambhala community is woven into this place, has developed great appreciation for the culture and the future of Nova Scotia and has a lot to contribute to this great part of North America," says Carolyn Gimian, a Shambhala community member. Learn about how Nova Scotia became a home for Trungpa and Shambhala through artifacts, member profiles, contemplative photography, a meditation room and more.

To April 21, Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, 1055 Marginal Road
