This photo was taken at JFK Airport [New York City] where Trungpa Rinpoche had set up a throne for Karmapa's arrival on his first trip to America in 1972(?).
You can barely see Trungpa Rinpoche behind Karmapa's right side. I believe the nun is Sister Palmo, Mrs Freda Bedi.
That's my back and Karmapa is smiling because he remembered me from India. communication from Arthur Mandelbaum.
