Nine Hundred Years

Today, 8 December 2010, marks the beginning of a year-long celebration of the 900th anniversary of the birth of the First Karmapa, Dusum Khyenpa. There is an official web site that will keep us updated on all observances, and there is also a webcast. This is a major event. Below are screen captures from the opening ceremonies, taken just a moment ago:

We also note that the 28th Karma Kagyu Monlam Chenmo will run from 15 through 22 December this year.

This is a good time to be in Bodh Gaya.
