Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Sakyong Wangmo Welcome a Daughter

This via Shambhala Sun Space:

Sakyong Wangmo, wife of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche — who is the eldest son of the late Chogyam Trungpa, founder of (among many things) Shambhala International and the Shambhala Sun — gave birth to a baby girl this morning in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

This is the couple’s first child. According to their personal physician, Mitchell Levy, there were no complications during the delivery and both mother and child are healthy and resting well. The couple have given their daughter the name Drukmo Yeshe Sarasvati Ziji Mukpo. Plans are under way to celebrate the baby’s arrival with a gathering at the Halifax Shambhala Center.

Warmest congratulations to the whole family!
