Karmapa Arrives at KTC-NJ, First Dharma Center Stop on Tour



(April 2, 2015 – Shamong, New Jersey) After an hour’s journey by road from the southern New Jersey town of Princeton, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa arrived at Karma Thegsum Chöling, a Karma Kagyu monastery. He was warmly received there by leading community members, headed by Lama Tsultrim, who had served as His Holiness’ shrine master in Tibet and accompanied the Karmapa on his daring escape from Tibet at the end of 1999.
During His Holiness’ four-day sojourn at Karma Thegsum Chöling, he will offer empowerments and teachings, and enjoy a rare day of rest during this extended tour across the country.
