Himalayan Community in New York Prepares to Welcome Karmapa






Karmapa Service Society, an association founded by members of New York’s Himalayan community, will be hosting His Holiness the Karmapa for a long-life empowerment and blessing on April 13, 2015. They have written in and shared photos of their preparation for this moment of such momentous importance to the Himalayan community in New York.
“We at Karmapa Service Society have been very busy preparing for His Holiness the Karmapa at our center in Jackson Heights, Queens. This is our first large event and even though we are a small group, we are humbled and honored to receive His Holiness. On Sunday, we once again visited the event site and are very excited because we expect it to be a full house.
“Although our KSS members have left our Himalayan homes and moved to the United States, we wish to welcome His Holiness with a traditional ceremony. We want His Holiness and everyone to know that we still keep faith in our tradition and that is why we are preparing a welcome reception with offering tormas and ritual ornaments.
“We are so fortunate to have His Holiness honor us with this visit and hope that many people will receive his blessings through this event. May all beings benefit greatly through our sincere activities!”
