It has been a long time since we’ve had news to share about the progress of The Karmapa Center 16’s vision to build a Parinirvana Stupa and retreat center for His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa.
We are delighted to inform you that we have at long last received preliminary approvals from the Village Board for the building plans! Therefore, we are able to announce the launch of a $1 million crowdfunding campaign to begin the stupa temple, a house for His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, and retreat housing. The whole site will be a peaceful place to practice, conduct pilgrimage and learn about Buddhism and the Karma Kagyu lineage.
His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, in a video statement recorded at the Karmapa Center 16, said “I would request everyone who has a connection of faith toward the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa to support these projects as much as possible.” View the video on the campaign’s GoFundMe page.
