Gyalwang Karmapa at the Damekh Stupa, Sarnath, Varanasi
March 23rd, 2011
His Holiness presided over a special prayer meeting for world peace at this ancient Buddhist site.
He arrived at 4.00pm, and began by circumambulating the outer circle of the Stupa complex, pausing to feed vegetables to the deer, a reminder of the deer who used to live here in the deer park at the time when Lord Buddha gave his first sermon here.
Seated under a golden parasol on the lawn in front of the Damekh Stupa Gyalwang Karmapa led half an hour of prayers for the well-being of all sentient beings, and then completed several circumambulations of the stupa itself. He then walked slowly towards the Mulugandhkutti Buddha relic temple. Inside the temple he sat down in front of the huge golden Buddha and continued prayers.
