GYALWANG KARMAPA CELEBRATES WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY


June 5th, 2009 - Gyuto/Dharamsala

With day-time temperatures soaring to more than 100 F, His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa waited until the early evening before taking part in a tree planting ceremony. The ceremony took place on the grounds of Gyuto Tantric University, His Holiness's temporary home near Dharamsala.
Accompanied by the Abbot of Gyuto and other senior Gyuto monks, Gyalwang Karmapa supervised the planting of ten saplings, various shrubs and a multitude of flowers.
The ceremony began with the recitation, by monks from Gyuto, of prayers for world peace. Then, the Gyalwang Karmapa placed the first sapling, an Ashoka tree, in the ground. He gently scooped up earth to cover the roots of the tree, and then watered it. The Abbot followed by planting a pine tree sapling.
