HH KARMAPA IN LADAKH: SEPTEMBER 13, 2008


On September 13, 2008, at 7am, His Holiness entered the great shrine hall of Mahey Gompa, where he performed ritual offering ceremonies together with the monks of Mahey. His Holiness engaged in special practices and prayers for the repelling of natural calamities in Asia. At 9am, His Holiness granted a blessing line to over 2,000 people who were not able to receive a blessing the previous day. Beginning at 10am, in the large field adjacent to the monastery, His Holiness bestowed the long life empowerment of Machik Drubpay Gyalmo and gave a talk connected to this empowerment. In his remarks, he gave advice on how to deal with day-to-day difficulties and gave other highly beneficial instructions. He also discussed the principle of samaya. Representatives of Mahey Gompa made 108 symbolic offerings of gratitude to His Holiness at this time. Approximately 8,000 people attended this event.
At 3pm, His Holiness gave an audience to around 70 people. At 5:30pm, since Drupon Dechen Rinpoche, the head of Mahey Gompa, was about to depart for Sherab Ling (in Bir, India) to receive teachings and transmissions, His Holiness's entourage, led by Lama Phuntsok, were granted an audience by him.
At 6pm, His Holiness said prayers, and even composed a few lines of verse, for peace in India and Tibet.
