Happy 30th Birthday to His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

We wish to update you about a minor change to our previous email and also an exciting new addition.

The minor alteration is that, due to a late change in the topics for debate, Ani Rinchen Khandro will not be appearing on next Sunday’s edition of The Big Questions. However, her contribution to Monday’s Woman’s Hour is going ahead as planned.

The important addition to our programme concerns His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, whose 30th birthday is on June 26th 2015. As there is a double 10th lunar day this month we will celebrate His Holiness’s birthday on the Last Saturday of June 27th 2015, which is also Guru Rinpoche day, by doing a Guru Rinpoche Shower of Blessings Tsok Puja. There is no need to book but please let us know if you wish to attend. Offerings and/or donations appreciated.

June 27th 2015 – The Last Saturday Schedule
10.30am – A brief explanation of the Shower of Blessings Puja by Ani Rinchen Khandro
11.00am The Shower of Blessings Tsok Puja in Honour of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa’s 30th Birthday (tsok offerings welcome).
12.00pm Sharing Tsok and Birthday Cake
2.00pm – 4.00pm The Centre will be open for personal practice.

We hope that you will join us for this joyous event, which will also be a good opportunity to become familiar with the Puja, especially as we will be doing it again it in September 2015 with Lama Yeshe Rinpoche as part of the 5th Anniversary celebrations KSD Edinburgh. But more of that nearer the time!
