Karmapa 1110 - 2010
“What we are remembering and reflecting on with Karmapa 900 is the great kindness of Dusum Khyenpa, the First Karmapa. Not only did he show measureless kindness to beings: through his deeds in founding the Karmapa lineage and the great lineage of the Karma Kagyu, Dusum Khyenpa was the source of 900 years of kindness to beings.
"Countless great beings have come and engaged in enlightened activities over the past nine centuries through this lineage. That was all possible only because Dusum Khyenpa came into the world. He was the actual seed for the vast tree of the Karma Kagyu, with its wide shade-giving branches and its blossoms and rich fruits.
“It is my personal duty and the duty of all followers of the Karma Kagyu to honor his deeds and his great compassion, courage and wisdom, by cultivating those same qualities ourselves. Karmapa 900 is designed to serve as a reminder, and as an opportunity to do so.”
- His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

For reasons unknown to me these videos have been blocked. I suspect it's part of the fight between the two camps of supporters of different candidates of the real reincarnation of the 16th Karmapa. If life turns out as the 16th predicted for a joint activity for us both, then I for one will know.
