The Joint Action Committee (JAC) has thanked Chief Minister Pawan Chamling for taking up the matter with the Centre on allowing 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to visit Sikkim.
During his meetings with Union Home minister Rajnath Singh and MoS Home Affairs Kiren Rijuju at New Delhi on November 17, the Chief Minister had reiterated the demand to the Centre for permitting the 17th Karmapa to visit Rumtek Dharma Chakra Centre, Sikkim.
“We are happy that the Chief Minister has once again taken up the Karmapa demand with the Central government. The Chief Minister has also submitted a memorandum stating that there will be no law and order problem if Karmapa is allowed to visit Sikkim. This is a good step by the Sikkim government,” said JAC spokesperson Thukchuk Lachungpa.
The JAC spokesperson expressed the committee’s hopes that the 17th Karmapa will soon take his seat at the Rumtek Dharma Chakra Centre. The committee members will meet the Chief Minister after his return to Sikkim and discuss the further course of action on the matter, he said.
“We will also submit a memorandum to the Prime Minister during his visit to Sikkim in January after consulting with the Chief Minister,” said Lachungpa.


  1. So happy to know that His Holiness will return soon to Rumtek Monastery. My heart always tells me that His Holiness will return to His Seat when the time is right..However there's drama of injustice in this samsaric world, Great Beings can decide on Their Own Wishes to accomplish goals.Becos They have already attained the potential to help themselves and others in their multiple Lives.So it's not that easy to trick, accused or defeat Great Beings. Ombenzasato...Emaho, Karmapa Khenno...May we meet soon at Yours Beautiful Realm of Rumtek Monastery...then my wish is again fulfilled with joy.....
