Tibetan Association of Boston will be hosting His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa on March 27th, 2015 (Friday) from 4 pm - 5:15 pm.


This is to share with you all the good news that TAB will be hosting His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa on March 27th, 2015 (Friday) from 4 pm - 5:15 pm. We apologize for such a late notification as we wanted to be absolutely certain about the event specifics with the Harvard organizers and His Holiness’ entourage. His Holiness will be arriving in Boston on March 25th, 2015 (this coming Wednesday) at 10:30 pm at Charles Hotel and will be here for 2 days on the invitation of Harvard University. He will be leaving Boston on March 27th, evening.

We first came to learn about His Holiness visiting Boston through a contact in Washington DC about 3 weeks ago. Since then we have been in constant touch with His Holiness’ entourage and the Harvard organizers to request for a time slot for our own event. Due to our request being so last minute, it was very difficult for them also to make adjustments on their part. We proposed to them different scenarios on how we might be able to squeeze into their schedule so that Boston Tibetans can have a chance to host His Holiness. After constant requests and perseverance, Harvard University offered us a space in their own campus at Braun Room, Harvard Divinity School on March 27th (Friday) from 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm.

We request as many Tibetans to attend this auspicious rendezvous with His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.

Event - His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa meets Boston Tibetan Community
Date - March 27th, 2015 (Friday)
Time - 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Venue - Braun Room at Harvard Divinity School (Andover Hall, 45 Francis Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138)

Tickets are NOT REQUIRED for this event. We hope everyone can be a little more punctual on that day and be there at-least by 3 pm so that we can have everyone safely seated by 3:45 pm inside the hall and have the event go by as smoothly as possible.


His Holiness will be arriving at the Charles Hotel on March 25th, 2015 (Wednesday) at 10:30 pm. We request as many people as possible to show up at the hotel to welcome His Holiness even though we understand it is a little too late in the night. But it is just one night in a year. Some of the Sunday School kids will be performing a welcome song along with Doga Genlas at the hotel.
