The present visit is likely to assuage the sentiments of a large section of Kagyupa followers, purportedly unhappy with the Indian government’s stance on the issue.
While a legal suit is currently sub-judice over his accession as head of Rumtek monastery, the seat lying vacant since the death of the 16th Karmapa, many of his followers here felt that by allowing him to visit Darjeeling the Indian government has partially relented to the demands.
