Poetry book for H.H. Karmapa

Dear friends,
I hope you are all well.

In celebration of HH Karmapa’s proposed visit to Europe in 2010, Bodhicharya Publications is planning to publish a book of poetry, inspirational prayers and songs, that will be offered to His Holiness by Ringu Tulku next year. We are now looking for contributions from Bodhicharya students and friends to include in this book.

Contributions will be appreciated in English, French and German but we would also be grateful for English translations from the original French and German. If you are unable to translate from French and German please let me know and I will put you in contact with one of our translators. You can send up to five contributions and the Bodhicharya editing group will decide which poems etc to include in this publication. However, if your poem is not chosen for this publication this time we may still use it for future volumes of poetry published by Bodhicharya in the coming years.

Please send me any contributions by the end of September 2009. We are also looking for drawings, illustrations or original photographs to include. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to know more.

with love and best wishes,

Margaret Ford
Bodhicharya Publications

    Please contact me directly. I’ve written a letter but it disappeared while sending it to you. Best wishes!

    Een lichtpuntje toont alleen de duisternis
    Ik nood het licht niet,
    de illusie van het mogelijke licht

    a point of light shows only greater darkness
    I need no light,
    not the illusion of a possible light
