HIS HOLINESS THE KARMAPA DEPARTS FOR USA FOR TWO-WEEK RELIGIOUS TOU


July 8, 2011. Delhi

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, departed yesterday for a two-week religious tour of the United States. During his stay abroad, His Holiness will engage in a variety of religious activities. From July 9-16, the Gyalwang Karmapa will receive the Kalachakra initiation from His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Washington, DC. The Gyalwang Karmapa will then visit Dharma centers under his spiritual guidance in the New York area. At his North American seat of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Center in Woodstock, NY., he will offer empowerments and teachings to his disciples.
This trip to the United States marks His Holiness' second international tour since fleeing from Chinese-occupied Tibet in 2000. In 2008, he conducted a religious tour to the United States, offering Dharma teachings and more broadly fulfilling his duties as a spiritual leader to millions of followers worldwide.
