Karmapa’s message regarding typhoon in China

August 10, 2019

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message regarding Typhoon Lekima in China:

Dear dharma friends

As I write, at least 18 people have lost their lives and more than a million people have been evacuated in China due to Typhoon Lekima.

May we pray for the families of all those affected. 

Such extreme weather events are reminders of the impermanent nature of our material world. As the storms of change swirl around us, may we turn to our practice, again and again, to find a state of stillness within. 

With compassion

Thaye Dorje
