taking the text in hand

while in sarnath, i attended a private audience with his holiness the karmapa, in the company of my korean friend, chonyi-la, and her mother and sister. when i first entered the room, i took the opportunity to offer 50 copies of the book mentioned in the next blog entry - a speech by his holiness the dalai lama, for and about tibetan nuns - to his holiness the karmapa - as consistent and clear a supporter of nuns as one could hope to find among lamas.

i placed the books on his table when i first entered the room, and even before we were seated, his holiness the karmapa had taken the book in hand and begun reading, nodding in agreement...
