17th Gyalwa Karmapa"Buddhism is a way of life through which we develop the qualities of our mind.
This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.

Lama Puntso begins another voyage: fifteen days in Kalimpong at the shedra (Buddhist University) of Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, for the celebrations of the third anniversary of Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche's parinirvana. We invite you to read his travel log, which he adds to regularly throughout his journey. A tale thousands of miles from Dhagpo, yet still close; the wealth of exchanges and connections that unite the practitioners from all horizons of the Karma Kagyu lineage. Are there really differences? Enjoy reading along on his blog!
