Karmapa’s message for Lama Ole’s birthday
Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares a message on the occasion of Lama Ole Nydahl’s birthday on 19 March 2016.
Dear dharma friends,
On this auspicious day, I offer prayers to the golden garland of the lineage masters of the Kagyupas, who are inseparable from the Three Jewels, to bless dear Lama Ole for his longevity.
Over many decades, Lama Ole has made the Buddha dharma accessible to countless individuals, and he continues to do so. Such a gift is invaluable because whoever receives the gift of the Buddha dharma, ultimately discovers an end to Samsara.
I rejoice in his unwavering dedication to bring inspiration and hope to the lives he touches.
Wishes for a long life, limitless activity and a joyous birthday.
