#Karmapa LIVE at Bodh Gaya

As Karmapa says:

The practice of aspirations is one of the most important aspects of life as a Buddhist. We aspire to peace and prosperity for all sentient beings. Above all, we aspire for enlightenment for all sentient beings. From a Buddhist perspective, this is the ultimate aim in life. It is a state of the cessation of dukkha or confusion, and this is what we aspire to.
