His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa arrives at Malaga airport
June 15, 2012 – His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa arrives at Malaga airport
His Holiness Karmapa’s arrival in Spain, which marked the beginning of a two-and-a-half month tour of Europe, had been eagerly awaited by tens of thousands of his followers. This tour will lead him to a total of six European countries (Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, Germany, England and France), and constitutes the second part of his extensive travel itinerary scheduled for 2012, the first part having been devoted to various destinations in South East Asia.
The enthusiastic welcome at Malaga “Costa del Sol” Airport reflected the devotion and love of His Holiness’ European devotees, who had last received him in Europe in 2009.
