Media Release

February 26th 2011

We are surprised to note reports in sections of the media, especially in the Indian Express (Chandigarh), Friday 25 February, of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the US Ambassador having discussed recent events around the Karmapa during their meeting on 24 February. The Indian Express said: “Sources said the Karmapa issue did figure in the Dalai Lama’s meeting with the US Ambassador .... “

We would like to make it clear that this report is entirely speculative and baseless. Neither side raised the issue at all.

At this time such reports are not helpful.

He had been invited to teach by the Prajna Upadesa Foundation, a community of Vietnamese Buddhists interested in the Nalanda tradition established in 2009.
