His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, head of the 900 year-old Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, will begin his 3rd US tour beginning in less than two weeks.

His first stop will be at Stanford University on March 17th, where he will talk about “Caring Connections: Compassion, Technology and the Environment.” This talk is sold out according to the tour website, but openings may become available and there is a notification list you can join at http://events.stanford.edu/events/499/49993/.

March 24th he will be at University of Redlands, where tickets are still available (For further details, click here).

That event is followed by a hop to the east coast and talks at Harvard, Princeton, Karma Thegsum Choling (in New Jersey), Yale, and the Danang Foundation, the Karmapa Service Society, and the Karmapa Foundation, all three in New York City. Finally he will visit the University of Wisconsin-Madison in late April and Nalandabodhi, in Seattle, Washington on May 9.

The full schedule is available at KarmapaAmerica2015.org.

You can read more about the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, at his website here.
And for more about the previous incarnation of the Karmapa, you can read an interview/book review I did last year of The Miraculous 16th Karmapa: Incredible Encounters with the Black Crown Buddha with responses from Norma Levine and Don Morreale.
