HH 17th Karmapa Mindfulness Meeting with Google Employees


Recently one of our sangha members shared his recollections and a few photos from the Stanford University teaching with His Holiness Karmapa, and we gratefully posted them on our blog. We wanted to be sure you didn’t miss hearing about His Holiness’ tour of Google, either, so  here you go!  Get full news on HH Karmapa’s Tour of the US.

On March 15, after several hours touring the sprawling campus of Google in Mountain View, California, a state-of-the-art driverless car delivered His Holiness the 17th Karmapa to a building where Google staff had assembled for a talk on “Inner Connection and Meditation: Changing the World from the Inside Out.” The talk was structured as a dialogue—or self-styled Fireside Chat—with Chade-Meng Tan, author of Search Inside Yourself, who heads Google’s personal growth and wellness services.

It was a meeting of minds focused on mindfulness and meditation, as His Holiness Karmapa, who in 2009 spoke at TEDIndia on “The Technology of the Heart,” was welcomed by Chade-Meng Tan, who in 2010 shared in his TED talk about how Google is making compassion a key business practice.

Mitra Tyler Dewar, Dean of the Nalandabodhi Mitra Council of senior teachers, served as translator for His Holiness during the Google visit.
