A Boulder Slideshow

Photographs and videos are among the ways in which modern Western technology has merged with the ancient Buddhist Dharma to create new means of liberation through seeing and hearing. As blogger Kathleen Franco wrote below, "Many of the attendees said that it was His Holiness’ presence that they will never forget. A theme true for countless members of audiences touched by the Karmapa in his tour of America. The Boulder crowd could not help but be touched by His Holiness and made a bit more malleable by his immeasurable love and compassion."

For those who were there and see these images again in photographs or video, it is a refresher, a vivid reminder of the quality and power of presence experienced with the teacher there. For those who could not be there, it is an equally powerful way of experiencing a deeper heart connection to the teacher's enlightened activity even from afar.

So, for those who were in Boulder this past weekend, and those who could not attend, we offer this brief slideshow of photographic highlights from the weekend's activities performed by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

originally posted [His Holiness the 17th Karmapa's 2008 U.S. Visit] New comment on Karmapa Meets Again with the Hopi People,as photos, a
comment was posted by me that has been deleted. Therefore I am re-
submitting my former comment as I
feel it is important to pass on this
blessing to the karmapa!
Once again bliss fills the hearts of all the native peoples of the four directions.
The sacred hoop{Hocoka) is once again whole. The time of the return of the White Buffalo Calf Woman is here. Strength to the lions roar as the eagle(wambli)circles above him. The time of change is now. Peace will reign Mother Earth. Wopila!
