Visits to Kagyu Centres

After teachings in Toronto, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, began touring Buddhist centres in Eastern Canada.  On June 7th, the Gyalwang Karmapa visited the seat of Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche, Palpung Yeshe Chokhor, in Halton, Ontario.  Here, His Holiness accepted a body-speech-mind offering from the centre’s director and resident monk, Lama Karma Phuntsok.  After which, His Holiness enjoyed dinner with students and the abbot.

The following day, at 11:30AM, June 8, 2017, His Holiness paid a visit to Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche’s seat, Karma Tekchen Zabsal Ling, at Aurora, Ontario.  The Karmapa was warmly received by students and the abbot of the centre, Lama Tashi Dondup, starting with speech and a body-speech-mind offering.  His  Holiness also shared lunch with the sangha, over which he expressed joy in being able to pay such a visit.

The destination after lunch was the Great Compassion Bodhi Prajna Buddhist Temple, where the Gyalwang Karmapa performed a blessing ceremony before concluding the day’s schedule.
