22 May 2017: Tibetan Peace garden, Imperial War Museum, London




Today, on a sunny, soft afternoon in London, Tibetans gathered to receive the Gyalwang Karmapa at the Tibetan Peace Garden. Located on the grounds of the Imperial War Museum, it is a reminder of their commitment to peace and the importance of non-violence. After a warm welcome from the Tibet Foundation, the Karmapa was asked to bless the bronze Kalachakra Mandala, which is placed at the center of the circular garden. Small children in traditional Tibetan dress sang “Our Country Tibet,” and a young man with a superb voice thrilled with the range of his song. Speaking in English, the Karmapa praised the work of the Tibet Foundation for its special outreach that benefits Tibetans in Tibet and India, saying, “Your work has created a wonderful example, for which I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Walking around the curve of the Garden, the Karmapa received khatas from well-wishers before walking across the spacious lawn to his car.
