Memories, Dreams and Reflections of the 16th Karmapa: Nothing Happens


by Madeleine Schreiber

At the time when His Holiness Karmapa was dying many of Trungpa Rinpoche’s students were able to visit with him in the hospital.  Foremost among them was the Vajra Regent Osel Tendzin.  He had very deep feelings of devotion for His Holiness and was weeping quite a lot.  At some point His Holiness expressed compassion for his grief and told him not to be bothered by death, that “nothing happens”  For several years after His Holiness passed away, bumper stickers could be seen on the backs of cars all over this continent that said “Nothing Happens”.
