Letter from the Office of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, August 5th, 2016

SEAT OF HIS HOLINESS THE 17TH GYALWANG KARMAPA ORGYEN TRINLEY DORJE

From the Monastery of the Practice Lineage, Karma Kamts’ang (sgrub-brgyud karma kaM-tshang gyi dgon-sde):

Respectfully addressed to all the Assemblies,

Due to the arising of the many most unfortunate hindrances to the essential teaching of the Practice Lineage [Karma Kagyü], along with its Upholders, a directive decree for virtue, on behalf of His Eminence the Glorious Victorious Master, the Karmapa, Orgyen T’rinlay Dorjé (rgyal-dbang karma-pa o-rgyan ‘phrin-las rdo-rje), has been issued, which humbly requests that our [Karma Kagyü] monasteries immediately practice, in an effective manner, The Māra-Repelling Ritual for the Heart of the Transcendental Practice of Deep Insight Sūtra [Prajñāpāramitā Hṛdaya Sūtra] (sher-snying bdud-zlog), and The Repelling Ritual of the Lion-Faced Ḍākinī (seng-gdong-ma’i zlog-pa). Thus, each monastery, in accordance with the express purpose of this urgent command, must please take care to appropriately implement these spiritual rituals which pacify, in a non-referential way (dmigs-med du), the full range of detrimental harm to the [Buddhist] Teachings and living beings.

Humbly presented by the Lama’s Residence of the Ts’urp’u Encampment (mtshur-sgar bla-brang), on the foreign date of August 5th, 2016.

[Signed and Stamped,]
