The 16th Gyalwa Karmapa's Visit to Crestone in 1979

The present 17th Karmapa, Orgyen Thrinley Dorje at the Kagyu conference held in 2002 at Thrangu Rinpoche's monastery in Sarnath. India.   

The 17th Karmapa Orgyen Thrinley Dorje turned 17 this year. Still partially sequestered in Gyuto Ramoche tantric University in Dharmasala, India he spends his time reading and studying and producing the most gifted expressions of poetry and art that reflect a vast understanding of Dharma for someone of this age. From the people who have had the good fortune to visit and meet with His Holiness in India report that he has a presence that effects everyone. The teachings that he has already given have indicated the great teacher that he is going to be. May the prayers of the vast number of Buddhist practitioners bring forth his total freedom to teach them as soon as possible.

Crestone looks forward to His Holiness's visit
