The Gyalwang Karmapa Confers Long Life Empowerment



22nd February, 2014. Samyeling (Majnukatilla) Delhi.
This chilly February morning found the Tibetan colony of Majnukatilla bedecked with flags and banners as people lined up early to get a good seat for the long life empowerment from the Gyalwang Karmapa. His Holiness first inaugurated the colony’s new community center, and then made his way to Samye Ling TCV school where more then two thousand people were waiting for the blessing and empowerment. The local head of the Tibetan community extended a whole-hearted welcome to His Holiness with speeches and a traditional offering of tea and rice.
His Holiness then bestowed the empowerment of Amitayus, expressing that our faith and good heart gave this meeting its auspicious meaning. Following the empowerment, he spoke at some length to the community members, giving them advice on many matters, from health to the Tibetan political cause. He stressed the importance of unity among Tibetans – that they shouldn’t allow the changing world situation to divide them, but should remember their cultural roots. Furthermore, he expressed that as the world becomes smaller it is becoming even more critical for us to remember to help each other in whatever small or big ways we can, and to rely on the strength of a good heart.
