Announcement from The Karmapa’s Office of Administration with Regards to Canceled European Tour

April 20, 2010

The Karmapa’s Office of Administration (Tsurphu Labrang) would like to express its sincerest regrets and sadness that the Dharma tour program of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa to Europe could not take place for reasons which have not yet been disclosed. We understand that this has created a lot of disappointment and frustration. However, we would like to request the many followers and devotees of His Holiness to take heart and not cast aspersion on any organization or government body for the cancellation of the tour.

We wish to thank the Government of India for all the assistance, hospitality and kindness that His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa has received after his arrival to India in the year 2000. We also thank Ven. Ringu Tulku and the organizers of the Europe Dharma Tour who have put in a lot of time and effort for many months in spite of their busy schedule and other commitments.

His Holiness’ announcement has said, “I hope that this is merely a temporary setback and that I will definitely be able to visit Europe in the near future.” Remembering this, we urge all to remain calm and collected.
