Gyalwang Karmapa Begins Two-Month Trip to US







His Holiness the Karmapa has departed India, for a two-month trip to the United States. During this third visit he is making to America, the Karmapa will lecture at universities across the country and reconnect with the many Buddhist communities under his guidance as head of the Karma Kagyu lineage. A major focus of this trip will be his stops on university campuses, where the 29-year old Buddhist leader will deliver lectures, interact with faculty, sit in on classes himself and take the opportunity to connect with young people.
Yale University is awarding him its prestigious Chubb Fellowship, and the young Buddhist monk will also receive an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Redlands. While at Yale on April 7, the Karmapa will be delivering the Chubb Fellowship Lecture: “Compassion in Action: Buddhism and the Environment.”
During the two-month trip, the Karmapa will also grant audiences, blessings and teachings in the New York area, Madison and in Seattle. Campus visits will include Harvard University, Princeton University, Stanford University, University of Redlands, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Yale University.
His first public activity will be a lecture in California at Stanford University on compassion, technology and the environment, on March 17. Before the commencement of the official tour, His Holiness will be in a private retreat.
This trip is being organized by the Karmapa Foundation. For detailed information on the visit and public talks, please visit www.KarmapaAmerica2015.org.
