H.H. the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa’s 30th Birthday

Birthday Celebrations in honour of His Holiness’ 30th birthday will take place on Saturday, June 27th from 9am-5:30pm at Thrangu Monastery Canada.

IMG_7505His Holiness has recently issued a statement reminding all of us of people’s hardships around the world. He therefore has chosen not to celebrate his own birthday (for more details, read here). However, others around the world are permitted to commemorate his birthday, and it is a good opportunity to remember the kindness of our teachers.

Prayers and a Body, Speech, and Mind Offering will be done at Thrangu Monastery Canada in honour of His Holiness’ 30th year; all are welcome to join.

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa is now in the United States
