8 August 2013, Main Temple, Tsuglagkhang – Dharamsala
On a foggy monsoon morning the Gyalwang Karmapa presided over a special prayer service at the Main Temple in Dharamsala, organized by the Central Tibetan Administration. Several thousand locals braved the wet and misty conditions to fill the Main Temple, uniting in aspirations for the well-being of the Tibetan people. The day marked the two-year anniversary since Dr Lobsang Sangay took office as the first democratically elected Sikyong or Prime Minister, in an historic moment for the Tibetan people. The Gyalwang Karmapa was joined by Kirti Rinpoche, the Abbott of Namgyal Monastery, members of the Central Tibetan Administration, and local Tibetan residents and supporters.
Later Gyalwang Karmapa paid short visit to Tibetan Library at Ghangchen Kyishong to study and refer books.
