Petition of Admonishment
The purpose of this Petition is to admonish Shambhala International (Vajradhatu) and any and all of its officers, directors, office-holders, members and such other attachés, both jointly and severally, throughout the vast ten directions and three times, to abide by the Three Root Buddhist Precepts (1) Do not what is evil (2) Do what is good and (3) Be of benefit to all sentient beings, the legal fiction of Shambhala Buddhism notwithstanding.
May it defeat the enemy wrongdoing!
