Did you know? The Boulder Shambhala Center Shrine Room was consecrated by HH Karmapa on June 19, 1980

Excerpt from the June/July 1980 issue of the Vajradhatu Sun:

His Holiness Karmapa Arrives in Colorado

With a soft smile on his face as he got off the airplane, His Holiness slowly walked toward the crowd of waiting students and television cameras. He was immediately greeted by the Vajracarya, who presented him with a white scarf and as he bowed, His Holiness blessed him by placing both hands on his head. He was then welcomed by Lady Diana Mukpo, the Vajra Regent and Lila Rich and the Board of Directors.
