    Harvest of Peace is one of four annual Nyida Day celebrations in Shambhala culture.  Nyida days are connected with the natural world (Nyi = sun and Da = moon), with each holiday marking the changing of the season.  Harvest of Peace is celebrated near the Autumn Equinox in the northern hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the southern hemisphere.
