Delhi: Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorjee Rinpoche gave long-life empowerment at Tibetan Samyeling colony in Aruna Nagar,Majnukatila. The school complex where the empowerment was done was fully packed with Tibetans and foreign devotees. The Welfare officer, Mr. Lekyi Dorjee welcomed the gathering and thanked Karmpa Rinpche for consenting to award the empowerment. He read the annual report of the settlement and presented a copy to Rinpoche.
After completing the long-life empowerment ritual, Rinpoche gave a brief talk to the gathering. He said the Tse-wang is being done so that one's compassionate and useful life could be prolonged for the benefit of others. We need to lead a meaningful life. Purpose of our life is to be able to contribute and help other. In order to do so, we need to have a good health and long life. The cause and condition of a healthy life is dependent on two factors: our external and internal health. External health is our physical wellbeing, and it is dependent on our food habit. Food needs to be looked at as medicine. Just as we are careful about the medicine doses and the timing, we also need to take our food accordingly. For internal health, we need to be kind, compassionate and open. This will keep us away from unnecessary sel-centered worry. If you are open, you will be able to deal with the problem more easily. Therefore, it is important to maintain this external and internal health to lead a long meaningful life.

Rinpoche also advised the gathering about the importance of unity and preserving our culture. He said all should practice our culture and language. Before we speak of preserving our religion, culture and language, it is important that each one of us should practice it in our daily life. We are in a free country, but we should not forget our people in Tibet. As a human being also, we have universal responsibility to contribute for the well beings of all sentient beings. Although Rinpoche was serious in his talk most of the time, we did made humorous comment here and there, which invited roar of laughter from the audience.  

The empowerment and the talk went smoothly. Like in many of the Tibetan ceremonies, tea and dresil serving in the fully packed premises with the teaching going on was not in tune with the time. Although there was no untoward incident, distribution of Tseril and jeldu could have been arranged more professionally. This is what some people observed.
