Karmapa's Office Responds to Indian Police Raid

On 28 January 2011, the Karmapa's Office of Administration issued the following official statement -- under obvious duress -- in response to the unprecedented Indian police shakedowns, and resulting wild speculation in the Indian media:

"Our lineage and His Holiness the Karmapa enjoy the love, trust and faith of millions across the world.  We have a rich history of public service made possible through financial dealings that are entirely transparent.  We will certainly answer all questions that the press and the public have, but for now we respectfully request you to allow us to concentrate on complying fully with the investigation that is underway.

Karma Chungyalpa
Deputy General Secretary and Spokesperson,
Karmapa Office of Administration"
