    Please come celebrate the life and times of the great mahasiddha and Vidyadhara, the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

    Chogyam Trungpa may have been the greatest Buddhist teacher in a thousand years. He's the reason we're all here in this beautiful building, Karma Dzong, the Boulder Shambhala Center.

    His life's work touched many thousands of people and continues to do so to this day. Let us keep his legacy alive for centuries to come for the benefit of all beings.

    Please join us on this day, the anniversary of his death, to practice and celebrate his legacy as a community of grateful practitioners and friends, new and old. All are welcome.
