Day 7 – Burying the EC time capsule

Each country with Diamond Way Buddhist Centers was invited to contribute an item that represents an important historical turning point in the development of the Dharma. These items have been placed into a time capsule buried by Gyalwa Karmapa and Lama Ole today and the plan is to open it again together in a future life in 108 years.

In the time capsule, there is a collection of special items representing the expression of Karmapa’s lineage as it has appeared in the West through the tireless work of Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl and all their students and friends. In addition to these items, people have written wishes including Lama Ole and Gyalwa Karmapa, who wrote his wish right before sealing the capsule.

May these items inspire our future Diamond Way sangha to know their roots and feel the power of this great lineage. May this time capsule be a symbol of gratitude from us to our teachers and secure the continuity of their activity. May our bond with our teachers and our sangha strengthen for all time and may we bring massive benefit to the world together.  May we always be close and our societies remain free so that we may all enjoy opening this treasure together in 108 years.
