The Journey Begins: The Karmapa Departs India






His Holiness the Karmapa has departed India, bringing the official start of his two-month trip to the United States that much closer. His first public activity is a lecture at Stanford University on compassion, technology and the environment, on March 17 in Stanford, California. In the interim, His Holiness is in a private retreat, preparing for what promises to be an epic journey across the country.
In the meantime, work teams in half a dozen universities and even more Dharma centers are busy working to make sure everything is ready to receive him. We will be sharing reports of their preparations and alerting you to opportunities to secure tickets to the events. Once the trip officially begins, we will be uploading photos and video daily, so do check back to this page often.
