DHARAMSHALA, MAY 19: The Tibetan Buddhist figure Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorjee yesterday began his first ever trip to the United Kingdom in the English capital of London, where he will give teachings and undertake religious commitments for the next few days.

The Karmapa who is considered as one of the highest reincarnate teachers in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy told devotees that he is happy to have made the journey to that part of the world and that he is looking forward to reaffirm the connection established by his predessesor.

“I am very happy to have this opportunity to visit the United Kingdom. We have had a strong Dharma connection with Britain from the time of the 16th Karmapa. For many years, I have had the hope to visit Britain, and I am actually delighted to visit this year, the young Tibetan Lama said in a video post.

The exiled religious figure who fled Tibet in the year 2000 in a daring escape has made three visits to Europe in the past will be giving teachings on the 8 Verses of Training the Mind and bestow the Chenrezig Empowerment through the weekend in London. His schedule extends on to May 27 when he will give a Long Life Empowerment at the Lakeside Country Club in Surrey.

The current Karmapa’s predecessor 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje was one of the first Tibetan religious teachers to propagate Buddhism in the west in 1974 and had a healthy followership in Europe and in North America subsequently.

In 2010, the Karmapa has set up ‘The Karmapa Foundation Europe’ headquartered in Brussels, to serve as his representative in Europe.
