Tawang gears up for His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa's maiden visit tomorrow - Tawang Vigilance



Tawang, November 27: Tawang has been decorated like a bride for the maiden visit of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje who is all set to grace Tawang tomorrow.
The township wears a sparkling look with a string of cleanliness drives led by Tawang MLA Tsering Tashi and DC Sang Phuntsok, backed magnanimous by the general public, who are volunteering in free service for the comprehensive success of HH Karmapa's visit.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu, who conceptualized the holy one's visit, will accompany the head of Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism, who will arrive at Tawang by chopper tomorrow and will convene a programme on 29 and thereafter the holy one will visit Dirang and Bomdilla on 30 November.
His programme will contain spiritual and traditional Buddhist teachings.
The Karmapa is the head of the 900-year-old Karma Kagyu lineage, which he has worked to modernise while remaining faithful to the authentic teachings of the Buddha.
The Karmapa, who is considered the third most important Tibetan religious head after the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama, lives in Gyuto Monastery in close proximity to the Dalai Lama`s official palace.
Since making headlines after fleeing Tibet in a dramatic flight from to India in January 2000 when he was just a 14-year-old, the Karmapa has emerged as a strong thought leader and retains a close relationship of mentor and protege with the Dalai Lama.
