Sri Lanka blasts: Karmapa’s message

April 21, 2019

Following the attacks in Sri Lanka, Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message of condolence.

Dear dharma friends

As I write, at least 207 people have lost their lives and hundreds more have been injured after several explosions in Sri Lanka.

During a holy week for Christians, worshippers were attacked in their houses of worship. Others were targeted in hotels.

Please join me in praying for all those affected, for the people of Sri Lanka, and for the end of violence in our world.

With compassion

Thaye Dorje

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
