17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje's Departure from Tibet with Pedro and Dorrit Gomez
Wednesday July 12
Join us for an evening discussion on 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje's departure from Tibet. Pedro and Dorrit were instrumental in Karmapa's journey and so many amazing stories will be shared with us.
Pedro and Dorrit first met Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl in 1984 at the Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Copenhagen, where they took Buddhist refuge. Pedro travelled with the Nydahls, crossing North and South America, Australia, and parts of Asia, and made a secret journey through Tibet in 1986. Out of gratitude and inspiration Pedro and Dorrit created a place to benefit and protect the Karma Kagyu lineage and offered it to Karmapa and the lineage. It was named “Karma Guen” after the famous seat of the Karmapas in Tibet. Pedro and Dorrit still live there and have been traveling worldwide giving lectures about Buddhism and sharing stories from decades of working for the benefit of the Karma Kagyu lineage.
