Karmapa prays for Spain

August 18, 2017

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message regarding yesterday’s tragic incident in Barcelona.

Dear dharma friends

As I arrived here in Spain to offer dharma teachings, I learned about the incident in the Las Ramblas area of Barcelona, where innocent people have lost their lives.

When natural disasters, and wholly unnatural disasters like this occur, it is very challenging to see any hope in such circumstances.

As this country grieves, let us all join in prayer for the victims, their loved ones, and for the whole of Spain. The very act of praying together is a source of hope.

With compassion
Thaye Dorje
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
