A House of Power

H.H. 16th Karmapa

H.H. 16th Karmapa

“You would come in [to Rumtek Monastery], you would see H.H. the Sixteenth Karmapa. You would see a man who could laugh so that you could hear it five houses away. You’d see a house of power, something you’d never seen before. If he were here now, everybody would gradually vibrate against the walls. I promise you that, just from his power. I’ve never seen anybody like him. I’ve seen all the high Rinpoches, all the Holinesses, but I’ve never seen anybody like him – nobody with his power, nobody with his blessing, nobody with his energy, that I’ve never seen.”

– Lama Ole Nydahl, 30 March 1996 at the International Karma Kagyu Conference, Karmapa International Buddhist Institute, New Delhi
