The Karmapa Black Hat Ceremony: the Proclamation of Enlightenment.
I saw the Black Hat ceremony several times as a young tike—and I loved the Karmapa, all of us children did, he was as warm and magnetic in person with children as he was powerful and grounded as a Buddhist teacher. Here’s an excerpt from a movie I recommend to you all, The Lion’s Roar.

So maybe take a good upright sitting position, a deep breath, and focus as you watch this. Take it in as if you were there, which, thanks to youtube, you basically are!
Bonus, a visit to the SF Zoo:
