17th Gyalwa Karmapa Rinpoche donated 200 thousand Dollars to Nepal Quake Survivors (Lhaksam)

Today on May 2nd 2015, all the Tibetan, Himalayan brothers and sisters  and loving American friends from New York/New Jersey met up at the Riverside church to pray for the tragic earthquake that hit Nepal. This tremor killed hundreds and thousand of innocent people, destroyed homes, created tears and destroyed Nepal itself. This prayer received the attendance of His holiness the 17th Gayalwang Karma pa also. More than 9,000 dollars were donated to this cause but what make us  touching was that His Holiness the 17th Gayalwang Karmapa donated 200,000 dollars to Nepal quake survivors. His Holiness said “Nepal and Tibet is like a family and very connected through history and it is our duty to support on this tragic situation of Nepal”.
