His Holiness the 17th Karmapa

At 30 years old, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje is the head of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He will visit France for the first time in 2016.

The Karmapa lineage is the oldest uninterrupted reincarnation lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, going back more than 900 years.

Like Nobel Peace Prize laureate His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Karmapa travels around the world teaching about Buddhist values.

With charming charisma, irreproachable ethics, open-mindedness and passion for the environment and profound wisdom, His Holiness is a true inspiration for Buddhists and non-Buddhists sensitive to the values of humanity and the environment.

His Holiness’ teachings remind us that “Compassion is a much more powerful and more beneficial motivating force than fear and anger.”
