Karmapa Gives Two-Day Teaching in New Delhi - Voice of America



2015.11.10




Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje gave a two-day teaching on, "Parting From the Four Attachments" at the India International Centre, New Delhi to devotees from around 30 countries including mainland China on November 7, 2015.
The teaching was based on Sakya Lama, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo's one stanza instruction. It is believed to have received the teaching from Bodhisattva Manjushri in his vision when he was on one month meditation retreat at the age of 12. The one stanza instruction is understood to have the entire practice of the path of the paramitas, condensed into training the mind in parting from four attachments.
Karmapa's teaching in Delhi was jointly organized by the 'Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama' and the 'Kun Kyong Charitable Trust of Gyalwa Karmapa.'
The documentary films on the life of the 16th Karmapa, "Lion's Roar" directed by Mark Elliott, and "Recalling a Buddha" directed by Gregg Eller were also screened during the two day teaching.
