It should be fine.

Regardless;

May all obstructing forces and factors for the Karmapa's teaching and activities dissolve, bureaucratic or otherwise. May his compassionate activity effortlessly spread in all directions.

And I quote:
I'm not really interested in the politics involved there but it might be worth putting 'Orgyen* Dorje' in the title, since not all followers of the Kagyu school view him as the Karmapa.

Actually I don't give a sh*t, but Vasana was responsible for the above quote and I have a bit of a (personal) issue with double standards... ;)

The difference here is that 'Ogyen Trinley Dorje' is there in the first post. Point taken nonetheless, I'll change the title once I remember how too.

Don't stress yourself dude, it really is not all that important, just be sure in the future to practice what you preach! :smile:

Anyone any more news on this? Is London the only stop on this visit?

No visit to Samye Ling or elsewhere?

Thanks Vasana for the info. I also imagine there will be some private engagements in addition to this.

Probably/ hopefully. The Sanghas of Samye will likely be kept more in the loop.

Interesting mix of events:
  • Teachings and empowerments
  • Event for British Tibetans
  • Interfaith visit
  • Animal rights/environmental events
  • Pro Tibet event

Happy to see him reaching outside his own constituency. Although this visit is not on a par with his last U.S. visit, the fact that he is addressing parliamentarians is interesting. Another sign that he is taking on some of the work started by HHDL.

I asked around in Samye but nobody knows much.
There are just rumours for now.
I dont see any kind of preparations happening .

Thanks for the info Florin. Well Samye Ling is at the opposite end of the country from London so there may not be time. That's a pity. I would be very surprised though if he didn't visit the wonderful London Samye Dzong at some point.

That's said the visit is 6 weeks away almost. Who knows what will change.
