The Office of His Holiness the Karmapa, is the personal office of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje. It provides secretarial assistance to His Holiness and broadly speaking, is responsible for all matters related to His Holiness. Opportunities to privately meet with His Holiness are generally divided into private audiences and media interviews. However, since His Holiness has many public engagements including extended visits and teachings that take up the majority of his time, there is often limited time to schedule private engagements.
Lama Jigme Rinpoche is General Secretary of the Karma Kagyu school, and is the representative of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje in Europe. In 1974, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, appointed Lama Jigme Rinpoche as his representative in Europe, asking him to run his European seat Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in Dordogne, France, saying "In the person of Lama Jigme Rinpoche, I leave you my heart".
