We are honoured and delighted to announce the first visit of His Holiness The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje to the UK in May 2017.

At 31 years old, His Holiness is the head of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, which is the oldest uninterrupted reincarnation lineage going back more than 900 years. His Holiness was born in the Lhathok region of Kham in eastern Tibet and received his initial education at Tsurphu Monastery. In January 2000 His Holiness fled to India and currently resides near to Dharamsala, where he receives thousands of visitors every year and continues to receive lineage transmissions and education. With charming charisma, open-mindedness, a deep passion for the environment and profound wisdom, His Holiness Karmapa is a true inspiration for Buddhists and non-Buddhists sensitive to the values of humanity.

Please note: The visit of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa will be finalised and confirmed only after obtaining all the necessary clearances from the relevant authorities.
