Welcome to the Boulder Shambhala Center

 

According to the Buddhist tradition, we don’t ever get new wisdom, nor does any foreign element come into our state of mind at all. Rather, practice is a question of waking up and shedding our covers. We have those goodies in us already; we only have to uncover them.”  

     —Chögyam Trungpa, Founder of the Shambhala Tradition from The Heart of the Buddha
