His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa visits Renchen Ulm for the second time

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa paid his second visit to the Bodhi Path Centre of Renchen Ulm between July 20 and 22, 2012.
Located in the foothills of the Black Forest in a lovely countryside famed for its orchards and vineyards, a mere 40 minutes drive from Strasbourg, Renchen Ulm radiates peace and serenity.
His Holiness’ first visit here took place in 2008, and the number of devotees attending the programme had tripled since then… It was the biggest event by far that the team had ever had to organise, and they made a marvellous job of it – everything went smoothly and seemingly effortlessly.
