The Karmapa arrives in the US of A

His Holiness, the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, is currently visiting the USA. It is his first trip outside India, so this is really a historic event.

He was in New York from 15 to 18 May, and will be in Boulder, Colorado, from 24 to 25 May, and in Seattle, Washington, from 29 May to 01 June. He is giving teachings and visiting various Buddhist centres.

You can keep up to date with his visit by looking at the official website and at this blog. I particularly like the blog, as they regularly update it with reports, and upload photos, slideshows and even video-clips.

I hope he will visit South Africa sometime. In the midst of all our turmoil, we really need great spiritual leaders to remind us of the importance of forgiveness and compassion.

Karmapa chenno.
