KTC-New Jersey Readies to Receive the Karmapa; Webcast Planned

Karma Thegsum Chöling-New Jersey KTC-NJ announces plans to webcast the entire day of teachings and empowerment that they are hosting on April 4. Translation into English and Chinese are planned, with a possibility that other languages may be added later.
KTC-NJ reports in, sharing the following glimpses of the preparations under way at their center in southern New Jersey:
“In anticipation of His Holiness’s visit, the KTC-NJ monastery building is being spruced up, repaired and reconfigured. His Holiness’s personal suite, including bedroom and a separate room for receiving visitors, is being reconfigured in an effort to better serve his needs when he visits NJ. The basement floor is being completely revamped to include guest sleeping rooms with additional exterior exits and fire suppression sprinklers. We are just now putting the finishing touches on this project that has been years in the planning and execution.
“Our lamas and volunteers are working almost around the clock to prepare for the presentation of a public teaching by His Holiness in a nearby hotel. Our 700 tickets were sold out in less than a week. Our guests will be coming from all corners of the globe. We are happy that so many will be able to receive the teachings in the direct presence of His Holiness. Although we are sorry that many more will be left out, this time, we welcome everyone to join us from afar through the live webcast that we are arranging.
“Our planning team consists of about 6 people working on a daily basis. As we approach the time of his visit, the number of active volunteers is growing. We expect about 50 volunteers to be actively engaged in housekeeping, food preparation and service, transportation and security, shrine care, flower arrangement, communications, ticket fulfillment, and greeting and serving our guests at the event.
With less than a month to go, we are very, very eager to welcome Karmapa and our dharma brothers and sisters from around North America and the world.”
