His Holiness the 17th Karmapa visited the Karma Thegsum Choling of New Jersey today, a dharma center of His Holiness operated by Lama Tsultrim and located on a large plot of land in the southern part of the state. His Holiness was received with extensive ceremony and bestowed a Medicine Buddha empowerment, along with wonderful teachings on global harmony and healing, upon the crowd of several hundred devotees. The teachings were translated into both English and Mandarin, the native language of a large portion of the audience.
