University of Redlands Prepares a Homecoming





His Holiness the Karmapa will visit the University of Redlands next week, honoring his relationship to this university that had created an academic course to allow students to travel to India to study with him. The Karmapa’s latest book, The Heart Is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out, is based on the teachings he gave them during that course.
The university will honor him in a ceremony on March 24 in which he will be awarded an honorary doctorate degree. The students have also prepared a special musical arrangement of a poem composed by the Karmapa as an ode to Mother Earth, and will perform it as part of the evening’s tribute, which will be capped with an address by His Holiness the Karmapa to the Redlands community.
Redlands set aside tickets for various Buddhist communities across southern California, as this is the lama’s only stop in the region. Tickets for the public sold out in precisely eight minutes, and the remaining seats in this 1,300 auditorium were taken within hours by students and faculty, who are pictured here lining up before the ticket window opened. The event will be webcast live.
