地点:美國 麻薩諸塞州 劍橋 哈佛廣場 Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts

On a sunny day in Cambridge, the Karmapa paid a surprise visit to the offices of BRDC. The new director, Jann Ronis, and BDRC’s staff of Tibetans and westerners were delighted to receive him and spend an afternoon in conversation around the seminar table. The wide-ranging topics included practice traditions, Tibetan history, the famous debate between Hashang Mahayana and Kamalashila, the texts in the Dunhuang caves, the Karma Gadri style of painting, and Tibetan poetry.
美國麻州劍橋一個晴朗的週日,法王噶瑪巴意外的出現在佛教數位資源中心的辦公室內,受到該中心的新主任傑恩.羅尼斯、西藏籍和西方籍職員們熱烈的歡迎。大家圍坐在會議桌前,與法王一起渡過輕鬆的下午,談話內容從實修傳承、西藏歷史、摩訶衍那和尚和蓮花戒論師著名的辯論、敦煌石窟中的佛經、噶瑪嘎孜派的畫風,一直到西藏的詩詞。

At the end, the Karmapa spent quite a while looking at the books lining the walls of various rooms in the office. He borrowed a number of them to study, which was taken as an auspicious sign that he will return to visit again.
臨行前,法王參觀辦公室內多面書牆上的典藏,並且借了幾本書回去閱讀。法王的借書之舉意義非凡,因為這預示著法王必再訪。
