In the late afternoon, as the day’s hot temperature was coming off of its peak, the Karmapa came to watch the second Gyalyum Chenmo Memorial Gold Cup in North America.
熱暑稍退的午後,法王噶瑪巴前往麥克.托里.帕克體育場觀看第二届北美嘉榮千莫紀念金杯足球錦標賽(編按:嘉榮千莫為第14世達賴喇嘛已故慈母的名字,尊者為以此錦標賽來紀念慈母)。

In welcome, he was greeted with the traditional auspicious offerings. The Karmapa then took his seat high above the field where he had a good view to watch the play along with more than a thousand Tibetans who had come to cheer on their teams.
抵達球場時,法王受到傳統禮儀的歡迎。接著,法王從球場上方視野極佳的觀眾席上,與特地前來為各自球隊加油的一千多位藏人共同觀看比賽。

The match was between the previous year’s champions, the Cholsum Football Club of Toronto, and Team Tibet, from New York and New Jersey, who won this year’s event 3-0.
今天對決的兩支隊伍是:去年的冠軍隊多倫多三區足球俱樂部,以及來自紐約和紐澤西的西藏隊。結果,西藏隊以三比零的戰績奪得今年的錦標。

The Karmapa was asked to address the crowd and he began by thanking all who had participated. He also remarked that it was important that the Tibetans living abroad, and on this occasion, especially those living in North America, could come together and get to know each other so that friendships could naturally develop. He also rejoiced in the activity of His Holiness the Dalai Lama who had made this event possible and noted how well the Tibetans played together with a positive attitude.
比賽結束後,法王應邀上台致詞。法王首先感謝所有參與的人員,接著表示,在海外,尤其是居住在北美的藏人,藉此機會相聚相知,讓友誼自然增長,這點非常重要。此外,法王也隨喜達賴喇嘛尊者的事業,讓這項體育活動得以成辦,並藏人正向積極的同場遊賽表示讚嘆。

This topic of harmony led him directly into an issue about which he often talks—positive relationships between the three large areas of Tibet and between the different religious traditions. Tibetan culture and religion, he said, depend on the Tibetans to preserve them and this is made possible through harmonious relationships between the three main areas of Tibet. The unity of these three is extremely important. Without it, the old divisiveness brings stress into this community. Everyone, therefore, has to put their shoulder to the wheel so that peace and well-being can happen within Tibetan society.
之後,法王直接切入另一個他經常開示的主題——西藏三區及不同教派之間的和睦關係。法王指出,西藏的文化和宗教,有賴於藏人對它們的保存,而這也要靠西藏三區之間的和睦關係來成辦。這三區的團結合作極為重要;如果大家不團結,舊有的分化和分裂,就會為這個社群帶來緊張和壓力。所以,每一個人都要肩負起責任,如此西藏社會才會有和平與安樂。

He concluded his talk with the aspiration that this would, indeed, come about.
結語中,法王祈求此願成真。
