The Gyalwang Karmapa Arrives in Paris



May 30, 2016 – Paris, France


After motoring from Zurich to Paris through the green hills of a gently rolling landscape, His Holiness arrived at the Champs Elysées for his first night in France. Lamas from centers all over Europe gave him a magnificent welcome with the music of jalings and a great golden umbrella above his head. Holding white scarves, hundreds of people greeted him with joy, with Ringu Tulku in the lead, followed by Lama Gyurme and the representative of the Tibetan people in France, Tsering Dondrup.
The Karmapa will be teaching at the Marriott Rive-gauche this coming Saturday, June 4, on the Four Noble Truths and meditation, and on Sunday, June 5, he will talk about happiness and compassion and also bestow the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara.
