Nuns' Jackets Designed by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa




His Holiness requested all the nuns tocome to the main shrine room of Tergar Monastery at 7pm saying he had a gift for them. When His Holiness arrived he explained that someone had sponsored jackets for the nuns to keep them warm. In a joking mood, he took one of the jackets out of its bag and read the label, "17th Karmappa Exclusive design" and then noted that they were 'one size fits all'. As he held it up, he wondered if they would fit the chubby nuns! No matter what size, each nun was overjoyed to receive this gift from His Holiness!
