Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa #Karmapa, shares the following message in the light of recent disasters.

‘Dear Dharma Friends

There are many forms of natural disasters. Tragedies take place daily, here in India, Italy, Myanmar and around the world.

It is important to practice mindful awareness so that our compassion reaches those affected by all disasters, not just those on a larger scale, or the ones featured by the media. The loss of a single precious human life, anywhere in the world, is a tragedy.

Wherever you are, no matter how much you suffer, you do not suffer alone.

As Dharma practitioners, we are all deeply connected, like mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters.

In the midst of turbulence, may we all find a place of stillness, clarity and peace. This place of stillness, this state of mind, lies within all of us. Our compassion and wisdom, our Inner Wealth, is unaffected by even the most extreme external conditions. No rain can dampen our inner peace. No wind can move our minds.

May we all pray together for all those who suffer.

With my heartfelt love and compassion

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa’




噶瑪巴關於印度70周年獨立日 的信息








Karmapa’s message for India’s 70th Independence Day:
Dear Dharma friends,
India’s 70th Independence Day is an auspicious moment in the story of this great nation. The 15th August 2016 is an invitation to recall the past with appreciation, and to look forward with hope. On this day, we remember that it is due to the sacrifices made by those before us that we are able to look to the future.

Since I was 11 years old, when I left my beloved birthplace in Tibet, India has been my home. Like a mother’s embrace, India has provided me with warmth, safety and love. It is because of her hospitality that, as Karmapa, I have been able to pursue my spiritual activities here and overseas for so many years.
Freedom is a precious gift. India offered my predecessor, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the gift of religious freedom. I continue to enjoy and appreciate this freedom from India, as do so many other fellow Tibetans, alongside India’s citizens.
Therefore, on Independence Day, may we recall the past with great appreciation in our hearts. May the nation of India and all of her 1.2 billion children be blessed. And may all of those around the world who value freedom of religion, speech and other democratic values celebrate this auspicious occasion.
Let us use this day to to sow seeds of loving kindness for our future, so that tomorrow’s generation may also look forward with hope.

With prayers
Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
