The ceremonies for the one-year anniversary of the passing of His Holiness Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche will be held at the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute (KIBI) in New Delhi, India, and not in Nepal as previously planned. The ceremonies will be led by Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa. The exact dates will be communicated soon. The Private Office of Karmapa regrets the inconvenience that the uncertainty in the program may have caused, and the delay in clarifying the location of the ceremonies. This is due to the recent earthquake in Nepal and the difficult conditions that followed.
