We are delighted to announce a special event with His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, on Saturday May 9th, 2015 at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall.
This event will feature Buddhist teachings by His Holiness Karmapa, and a panel discussion with the Karmapa and Seattle area youth leaders engaged in working for social justice.
The program includes two teaching sessions:
Session 1, from 2:00 4:00 pm
The afternoon session will feature a talk by His Holiness Karmapa: "A Call to Compassionate Action," and a panel discussion with the Karmapa and Seattle area youth leaders working for social justice.
Session 2, from 7:00 9:00 pm
In this session, His Holiness the Karmapa will illuminate the stages of mind training that bring forth wisdom, which deepens our compassion. By becoming progressively attuned to the interdependent nature of reality, as well as the fundamental spaciousness that characterizes all things, we gain the compassion that is truly able to liberate suffering.
About the Karmapa
His Holiness the 17th Karmapa heads the 900-year-old Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He guides millions of Buddhists around the world. At the age of fourteen, he made a dramatic escape from Tibet to India to be near His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his own lineage teachers. Currently 29 years old, the Karmapa created an eco-monastic movement with over 55 monasteries across the Himalayan region acting as centers of green activism. He recently announced plans to establish full ordination for women, a step that will change the future of Tibetan Buddhism. His latest book, The Heart is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out, is based on his interactions with American university students.
