Message from The Gyalwang Karmapa Concerning the Recent Earthquake





Today, in the morning of the 25th of April, in Nepal, the land where Lord Buddha was born, there occurred a devastating earthquake. Many thousands of people have been killed or injured, and historic buildings and private homes have been turned into ruins. As soon as I learned of this painful and distressing situation, I made my deepest aspiration prayers and dedications for all the people affected, and continue to do so. Especially at times when we are faced with such a desperate situation, we cannot sit idle, unfeelingly. We must join forces and carry the burden of sorrow together. It is important that each one of us light the lamp of courage. Additionally, it is important that each of the Karma Kagyu monasteries in Nepal, while looking after their own pressing needs for immediate protection, also extend any and all aid and protection they can to the public in their surrounding communities. From my own side, I will make every effort to come personally in the near future to offer my solace and support as well.


西元2015425日的今天,本師釋迦牟尼佛出生地──現今的尼泊爾,發生了毀滅性的大地震,造成數千人傷亡的悲劇,許多珍貴的古蹟和民宅也坍塌成廢墟。一得知這個令人痛心疾首的消息,我當下即刻為地震受害者做了最深切的祈願和回向,並繼續不斷地祈禱。特別是在面臨如此絕望的情境時,我們不該冷漠以對,而是應該齊心協力,同承悲傷之重擔,每一個人都應當點亮勇氣之燈。

此外,我也呼籲位於尼泊爾的所有噶瑪噶舉寺院,除了尋求自己眼前所需要的保護之外,也要伸出援手盡全力幫助周邊的居民;我自己也會努力計畫在不久的未來親自前往,獻上我的安慰和支持。
