A Summary of the Advice Given by His Holiness the Dalai Lama

It is mainly Chamgon Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche along with Tsurphu Gyaltsap Rinpoche and those closely connected, who are responsible for finding the reincarnation of the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, and I am very happy about this. There is a proverb that says where there is great Dharma, there is immense Mara. Although there have been some difficult situations, from now on, everyone should maintain firmly their faith and samaya. I pray that this precious reincarnation will have a long life and that his activity will flourish. I wish you all Tashi Delek.
