Of all the cultural traditions initiated by Trungpa Rinpoche, perhaps none have been observed with more enthusiasm and consistency than Children’s Day. “Dharma brats” and their parents have been decorating shrines and anticipating Children’s Day morning for thirty-two years. Chögyam Trungpa himself arranged the first shrine at the Kalapa Court in Boulder in 1978. Since then, shrines have been set up and taken down year after year in hundreds of households all over the world.

What does your shrine look like? Please send us a photograph. We’d also like to know about your family traditions and stories. What is Children’s day like in your home? Send us your shrine photos, stories, and family traditions.
