His Holiness Karmapa in America (Journal Entries)

Sunday, June 1, 2008

Today was the final day of public events for the historic first visit to the United States of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Drodul Trinley Dorje. In the morning, His Holiness bestowed the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara upon a gathering of nearly 3,000 people at Seattle’s Paramount Theater and offered a riveting teaching on love and compassion. In the afternoon, His Holiness gave an equally inspiring talk on saving the world and respecting the environment through understanding the interdependent condition of all members of the global community. Also in the afternoon, His Holiness granted a blessing audience to Seattle-area children and their parents. The last event of the day was a farewell ceremony at Nalanda West at which His Holiness expressed his heartfelt gratitude to all who made his first visit possible. His Holiness expressed his great delight at what he commended as a highly successful and well-organized first visit. After thanking the government of India, the government-in-exile of Tibet, and the government of the United States, His Holiness expressed his sincere aspiration to return in a timely way to the United States so that he may continue fulfilling the wishes of his many students here.
