Caring for Life on Earth in the Twenty-first Century

Harvard Divinity School is honored to host “Caring for Life on Earth in the Twenty-first Century,” a talk presented by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa heads the 900-year-old Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He guides millions of Buddhists around the world. At the age of 14, he made a dramatic escape from Tibet to India to be near His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his own lineage teachers. Currently 29 years old, the Karmapa created an eco-monastic movement with over 55 monasteries across the Himalayas acting as centers of green activism. He recently announced plans to establish full ordination for women, a step that will change the future of Tibetan Buddhism. His latest book, The Heart is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out, is based on his interactions with American university students.

The event is free, but tickets are required. Limited public tickets will be available through the Harvard Box Office beginning March 10. Limit of 2 tickets per person (pending availability). In person ticket distribution only at the Harvard Box Office location in the Smith Campus Center.
