Woodstock, NY, USA. February 14, 2016. From 2-4 in the afternoon, over 50 people, including lamas, staff, guests, and local students, joined President Khenpo Tenkyong, Louise Light (Designer), and Maureen McNicholas and Peter van Deurzen (KTD Publications) in celebrating the North American launch of Dharma King, viewing the Monlam launch on YouTube, enjoying hot apple cider, pear tart, chocolate torte, and many other good eats. As we viewed the presentation in India and poured over our copies handed out to all who attended, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa's presence was joyfully felt by all.
