GYALWANG KARMAPA LEADS PRAYERS FOR TSEWANG NORBU


August 21, 2011 - Dharamsala, Gyuto

His Holiness Karmapa led a prayer session for Tsewang Norbu, the 29-year old monk who set himself ablaze protesting China's rule over Tibet Monday last.
Observing the Buddhist ritual of 'Duntsik' (weekly prayers), local Tibetans led by monks and nuns earlier today performed the first Duntsik prayers for Tsewang Norbu at Tsug-la Khang, the main temple. The mass prayer session was organised by 11 Dharamshala based organisations.
The prayer session at Gyuto Monastery was held at the behest of the monks of the monastery.
