The Kangyur, the complete library of the Buddha’s teachings, was installed in the Karma Dzong main shrine room in Boulder on July 1, 1983. Here is a video of the installation ceremony and a talk by Trungpa Rinpoche.
This video was produced by Kalapa Recordings and the Shambhala Archives to mark the Speech Empowerment of the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya at Shambhala Mountain Center on July 20, 2008.
The identity of the videographer and sound technician who made the original recording remains a mystery.
Thank you to Kalapa Recordings and the Shambhala Archives for marking this historic occasion, and for preserving and restoring the original video. Thank you to Director Emeritus, Carolyn Gimian, and restoration/editor, Gordon Kidd for their work on this project.
Thanks to Diana J. Mukpo, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and members of the Mukpo family for their support. Thanks also to the members of the Dharma Ocean Society who continue to fund the on-going work of the Shambhala Archives in collecting and preserving these precious teachings.
