International Karma Kagyu Conference in New Dehli
The official Monks' Community of Dharma Chakra Centre, Rumtek, Sikkim, India, hereby invite the representatives of Karma Kagyu Monasteries and Dharma Centres in the Himalaya region, and throughout the world, for an International Karma Kagyu Conference in New Dehli on March 28-30, 1996.
This invitation is addressed to those Karma Kagyu institutions which have not been actively engaged in the violence and slander campaigns which have taken place around the Karmapa issue.
It is requested that each country or region sends only one or two representatives.
This meeting is intended to shed light upon the events surrounding the Karmapa issue and to be an exchange of information, touching topics such as:
1. A presentation by K. Shamar Rinpoche on his recognition of Karmapa Thaye Dorje as the 17th incarnation of H.H. Gyalwa Karmapa.
2. A report on the course of events at Rumtek Monastery related to the Karmapa issue, by the Karmapa's resident monks.
3. The continuation of the Karmapa's activity worldwide. Due to the frequent use of Rinpoches as a means to manipulate followers during recent years, we have preferred not to involve the Karma Kagyu Rinpoches in this meeting.
We look forward to your participation in this most important event.
With best regards Umze Ngedon
Representative of Rumtek Monks' Community
