Doctorate Awarded to the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa

(March 24, 2015 Redlands, California) The University of Redlands honored His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, in every possible way this evening, awarding him the highest academic degree, creating a musical arrangement of his song Aspiration for the World, flying the Dream Flag on the campus flagpole, listening attentively to his lecture and to end the night a standing ovation and (since this is, after all, a university campus) Karmapa after-parties!

Listen to the song that was performed in his honor here. Read the proclamation here. Click on the photo above to view the full slide show or watch the video below. The University of Redlands has uploaded a full album of photos documenting his entire visit here.
