Bodhgaya and Root Institute

The Kagu monlam is going on at the moment, so there are a lot of monks and nuns in town from around the world. I think that this Karmapa is not from Tibet. It seems there are 2 and there is a huge debate as to who is the real one.

I’m off to Delhi tomorrow for one night. Then I catch an overnight train to Dharamsala where His Holiness lives. I’m told it’s snowing there at the moment. I’ll post again from there when I make it.
