2014-6-17



[Memorandum submitted by Hon’ble CM to Hon’ble PM]
17TH GYALWA KARMAPA, OGYEN TRINLEY DORJE TO RUMTEK MONASTERY:-
The Karmapa is the head of the Kagyu lineage in Mahayana Buddhism. The Rumtek Monastery has been the seat of the Karmapa ever since the 16th Karmapa, Ranjung Rigpe Dorje took refuge here.
The people of Sikkim have been anxiously and expectantly waiting for the Government of India to allow His Holiness Ogyen Trinley Dorje to take his seat at Rumtek for a number of years now. It is a long-pending wish of the people of Sikkim and an issue close to the heart of every Sikkimese. In the past, the State Government has made numerous representations to the Centre regarding this issue. The first representation was made in the year 2000.Ever since; the State Government has submitted other petitions as well.

You are aware Sikkim is a peaceful State where the people are simple and religious minded. The presence of the Karmapa in the State will further enhance the tranquillity of the State and add to the spiritual development of the people. We are anxious to see that the State prospers not only materially but in all aspects of human development. We would, therefore, like to request you to kindly facilitate the early coming of His Holiness Ogyen Trinley Dorje to Sikkim.
