Dear dharma friends

Sushma Swaraj was an outstanding politician, Supreme Court lawyer and public figure in India.

With positions including the Minister of External Affairs of India, a Member of Parliament, Member of the Legislative Assembly, cabinet minister, Chief Minister of Delhi, and the first female spokesperson for a national political party, her life was dedicated to serving this great nation and its people. In all facets of her life, Sushma Swaraj acted with great compassion, tirelessly working to serve those in need. 

Please join me in praying for the loved ones of Sushma Swaraj.

With compassion

Thaye Dorje

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
