化育 - 金剛經課程「取消」通知
Recently the Gyalwang Karmapa went through a medical examination in Germany, his doctor strongly advise him to stop all Dharma propagation activities so that he has more time and space to treat some of the medical conditions that he has. After much consideration, the Gyalwang Karmapa decided to cancel this year’s Asia Dharma Teaching, i.e. the Diamond Sutra Teaching.
When we heard about the Gyalwang Karmapa’s decision to cancel the teaching, our emotions evolved from unspeakable shock to calm contemplation. Eventually, we understand the difficulty and necessity to make such a decision. We will continue to pray that the Diamond Sutra Teaching to be held in future, yet we are unsure when and where the teaching will be held. Therefore, we will begin the refund process for those who had registered for the teaching after we had negotiated with the hotel for refund.
Even though we feel a sense of regret that the Diamond Sutra Teaching cannot be held, yet we understand and support the Gyalwang Karmapa’s decision. Through the lesson of Diamond Sutra, we learnt that all conditioned phenomena in its continuous change, are like dreams, illusions, bubbles and shadows. Perhaps, this is the first lesson taught to us by the Gyalwang Karmapa.
Regarding matters related to refund, please follow the instructions below:
(1) We will contact you with email.
(2) If you do not receive any email please contact us.
We are currently actively negotiating with the hotel regarding refund matters. We will gather the details of refund from you and will arrange for refund of payment to you as soon as possible. Please be patient with us. Fellow Dharma friends may make arrangements for other matters such as cancellation of flight tickets and delaying of visa applications.
Thank you for your kind understanding. Kindly forgive us for any inconvenience caused.
