The Karmapa Comes To New York

May 20th, 2008 · No Comments · Filed under: Dharmic

His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, the leader of the Kagyu lineage, is in America as this is written.

Acharya Eric Speigel, of the Shambhala lineage – and once a teacher of mine in Austin for a weekend class on death and dying – sent us a lovely and touching account of the Karmapa’s landing and teachings in New York.

The Austin Shambhala blog has the full accounts – he’s sent us two so far. Here are some links.

Official websites for the Karmapa are here:

It was wonderful for our sangha to hear about the Karmapa from our dear friend in New York.
