WHAT IS THE UPAYA COUNCIL?The Upaya Council is a mediation and arbitration council which was established and appointed in 1979 by the Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Its function is to assist members of the Shambhala community to resolve commercial and domestic disagreements which may arise among us from time to time.
Now, many years later, under the direction of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the Upaya Council has adapted to meet the needs of the present time while maintaining its established procedures. The Sakyong has requested that the council revitalize itself and make itself increasingly accesible to members of the Shambhala community.
