As Dharma communities and university students on the West Coast make the most of each moment of their time with His Holiness, back on the East Coast, people are scrambling to use every remaining moment to have every last piece in place to receive His Holiness the Karmapa when their turn comes to do so.
In Manhattan, Jane Kolleeny and her team are busily pulling together all the conditions needed for the talk in Manhattan on April 14th, organized by Karmapa Foundation, with all proceedings going to support this two-month trip. Here is a report from the KF team in New York.
Anticipation is building as we prepare for His Holinesss only appearance in Manhattan, at the New York Ethical Culture Society on April 14th. Its a beautiful space with a great history. We recently went on a team walkthrough through the dark-wooden hall, getting ready to welcome the Karmapa. The staff of the venue was very excited as well!
The next day, we visited ABC Carpet & Home, the legendary store off Union Square, to pick out furnishings and carpets to transform and uplift the space and welcome His Holiness back to New York.
