This year marks the 900th year since the birth of the First Karmapa Düsum Khyenpa (1110-1193), who founded the lineage of Kagyu in 1139 C.E.
It is said:
Those who observe the anniversary
Of the passing of their lamas and venerate them,
Will soon be born among their first circle
Of disciples, and become a guide for beings.
Monasteries and dharma centers of the Karma Kagyu, the lineage of practice, are collaborating to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the birth, in Tresho, Kham, of the First Karmapa Düsum Khyenpa, the glorious crown jewel of the practice lineage.
As part of the 900th year celebration, His Holiness Karmapa's Office of Administration (Tsurphu Labrang) is collecting photographs of His Holiness Karmapa, in particular the16th Karmapa.
The Tsurphu Labrang is requesting all devotees, students, and Dharma benefactors to please share your photographs of His Holiness, and to be a part of the celebration.
Should you have photographs to share, please email them to karmapapictureproject@gmail.com.
