Harvard Divinity School is honored to host “Caring for Life on Earth in the Twenty- first Century,” a talk presented by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa heads the 900-year-old Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He guides millions of Buddhists around the world. At the age of 14, he made a dramatic escape from Tibet to India to be near His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his own lineage teachers. Currently 29 years old, the Karmapa created an eco-monastic movement with over 55 monasteries across the Himalayas acting as centers of green activism. He recently announced plans to establish full ordination for women, a step that will change the future of Tibetan Buddhism. His latest book, The Heart is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out, is based on his interactions with American university students.

Limited public tickets will be available through Harvard Box Office.
