Karmapa Visits Boulder, Colorado(Saturday, May 24, 2008)


Today, His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Drodul Trinley Dorje, made his first visit to Boulder, Colorado, the small but thriving city at the foot of the Rockie Mountains which His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, visited three times and at which Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, one of the greatest Buddhist masters of the twentieth century, established his first headquarters at the Shambhala Center, the location of His Holiness’s reception today. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Lady Diana Mukpo, Shambhala President Richard Reoch, and representatives and members of many dharma communities received His Holiness in the grand shrine room at the Boulder Shambhala Center.
After giving a brief address at the Shambhala Center, His Holiness retired to his residence, where he rested before visiting Naropa University, a contemplative educational institution founded by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in the 1970’s. His Holiness addressed members of the faculty, staff, and student body. His Holiness will give a full day of teachings at the Macky Auditorium here in Boulder tomorrow.
