Karmapa means “the one who carries out Buddha-activity” or “the embodiment of all the activities of the Buddhas”. In the Tibetan tradition, great enlightened teachers are said to be able to consciously control their rebirth in order to continue their activity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Born in Tibet and currently residing as a refugee in India, His Holiness has continued his traditional monastic training and philosophical education, but has also begun studying more modern subjects such as science and the English language.

As a scholar and meditation master, as well as painter, poet, songwriter and playwright, the Gyalwang Karmapa embodies a wide range of the activities that Karmapas have engaged in over the centuries. As an environmental activist, computer enthusiast and world spiritual leader whose teachings are often webcast live, the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa has brought the Karmapa lineage’s activities fully into the 21st century.


The Princeton University talk also will be live streamed on the Karmapa’s official webcast page.
