Karmapa offers prayers following infant deaths in Uttar Pradesh

August 12, 2017

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares this statement following today’s news of the tragic incident in Uttar Pradesh.

Dharma friends

I have just learned about the passing of at least 60 babies at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh in Northern India.

I am not a parent, and so it is impossible for me to understand what the families must be going through.

Having said that, I offer my heartfelt prayers for all of those suffering as a result of this tragedy, and I ask all of my students to offer their prayers as well.

With compassion

Thaye Dorje

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
