Budhist leader HH Karmapa had met the GCIC president
H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinlay Thaye Dorje, the spiritual head of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism met with Dr. sajan.K.George,Founder president of Global council of Indian Christians(GCIC).
GCIC President shared with the Tibatan leader, large scale violations of rights of the religious and linguistic minorities in different parts of the world with special reference to India and Sri Lanka
The Karmapa was the first incarnate lama (tulku) in Tibet. The present 17th Karmapa was found and recognized as the genuine Karmapa reincarnation by H.H. Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, second to the Karmapa in the Karma Kagyu Lineage.
The Karmapa Lama understands the sufferings of being embarrassed and persecuted and forced out,of his own homeland and so can understand the pain and sufferings of our Kandhamal Christian who continue to be targeted, harassed and endure social boycott.
Also the vulnerable minority Christian community who in so many places in Secular India are being treated like second class citizens because of their Christian Faith.
