His Holiness, the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley Dorje, the spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage, one of the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, paid a short visit to the veterinary clinic of Tibet Charity on 23rd October 2015.
His Holiness was received at the gate of the clinic by the Director and other staff of Tibet Charity Animal Care Section with ‘khatas’, traditional Tibetan scarf. He then went to each of the rooms of the clinic consecrating each one of them.
His Holiness Karmapa is a known environmentalist and animal lover. His love from the animals can be gauged from the fact that he chose to visit the clinic in spite of His highly busy schedule on the day. He was on His way to be the Chief Guest on the occasion of 55th Anniversary of Tibetan Children’s Village.
We felt highly blessed and we are sure his blessings and prayers will help the animals coming to the clinic for treatment.
It is our good fortune to be able to be a part of the Animal Welfare Camp organised annually by His Holiness Karmapa at Bodh Gaya.
