This weekend the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, will join the ranks of previous TED speakers Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Jane Goodall when he presents at this year’s TED conference. The annual invitation-only TED events bring together over 1,000 delegates from 35 countries around the world to present on “ideas worth spreading.” This year’s conference will be held in Mysore, India with the theme “celebrating and exploring the beckoning future of South Asia.”
His Holiness the 17th Karmapa is scheduled to give a talk entitled “Within You Without You” on Saturday as part of the four day assembly.
The Times of India has set up a webcast site where visitors can watch the TED talks live.
