DHARAMSHALA, NOV. 29: The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje arrived in Tawang, Arunchal Pradesh, in his very first visit to the border state accompanied by MHA advisor Amitabh Mathur on Monday.

The young Karmapa visited Sera Je Jamyang Choekorling monastery and Sangyeling monastery before heading for the famous Tawang monastery where he thanked the Chief Minister Sri Pema Khandu and MHA of Arunachal for making the visit possible.

Addressing the audience at Tawang monastery, the Karmapa said a firm faith in the teachings of Buddha and His Holiness the Dalai Lama was necessary to carry forward the understanding of Buddhist philosophy and science and imbibing them in daily life.
He stressed on discipline and harmony between different sanghas which can help Buddhism progress in the region.

Chief Minister of Arunachal, Pema Khandu, said the Karmapa and His Holiness the Dalai Lama are “honored guests” of India which makes their freedom of movement an Indian affair and China should not intervene in India’s “internal matter,” said the CM.

The Karmapa will visit Dirang, West Kameng District and Bomdilla tomorrow as he wraps up his tour.

The Karmapa is third important figure after Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama in Tibetan Buddhism. Gyalwang Karmapa is the head of the age-old Karma Kagyu lineage and has been recognized by the Dalai Lama as the 17th Karmapa. But there are others who refute Ogyen Dorje being the real Karmapa and consider Karmapa Thaye Dorje as the reincarnation of previous Karmapa.

Rumtek monastery, also called Dharmachakra centre in Sikkim, is considered as main seat of Karma Kagyu lineage in India and is also the focal point of this sectarian tension between the two organizations, Tsurphu Labrang (supporting Ogyen Trinley Dorje) and Karmapa Charitable trust (supporting Thaye Dorje). The Karmapa controversy is played out in the Indian court as the two rival parties supporting the two candidacies has reached an impasse.
