Teachings on
"The Precious Treasury of Pith Instructions"
(Man ngag rin po che'i mdzod) 
Khenchen Pema Sherab

The Precious Treasury of Pith Instructions, one of the major works of Longchenpa, the Omniscient Sovereign of the Dharma (1308-1364) is the shortest of the seven texts of the “Seven Treasures” cycle, and the only one composed entirely in verse. Longchenpa exposes the principles underlying the entire range of Buddhist practice in more than 400 stanzas, each consisting of six instructions or pieces of advice. Khenchen Rinpoche will be teaching every morning with the exception of Sunday 15 July and Sunday 22 July. Beginning at 09h30, Tuesday 10 July.

The teachings will be given in Tibetan, translated into French. An English translation will be provided if necessary.
The teachings will be given at La Sonnerie, 24290 Saint Léon sur Vézère
Contribution (without meals and accommodation) : entire teaching : 300 € ; partial : 20 € / day

Summer Seminar
Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche
Tsetrul Pema Wangyal Rinpoche
Tsawa Rinam Rinpoche

As the previous years, our lamas wish to devote the time available to a retreat in which teachings will alternate with periods of meditation practice. While it would be best to attend the sessions in their entirety, the retreat is open to all and everyone is encouraged to attend as much as they can.

The teachings will take place at La Sonnerie and will begin at 09h30, Saturday 28 July.
The rest of the programme will be announced as events proceed.
Contribution : 20 € / day (without meals and accommodation)

Registration :

from 22 to 30 August 2018


Neten Chokling Rinpoche, Ogyen Topgyal Rinpoche, Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, Tsetrul Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, Tsawa Rinam Rinpoche, Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche, and the Lamas and monks
of Pema Ewam Cheugar Gyurme Ling.

The lamas and monks will perform the various stages of the ritual with chanting, music and sacred dances. Everyone can take part, by joining in the recitation of the mantra, which will continue day and night, or by helping with the various daily tasks necessary for this type of elaborate practice.

This event will be organized by the Association Cultuelle Guiana Kara. This association, regulated by the law of 9th December 1905, was created in 1992 upon the initiative of our masters to preserve the spiritual aspects of their activities (the practices, the ceremonies and the buildings related to them).

The Drouptchen will take place at the Domaine de Lembrun 47110 Le-Temple-Sur-Lot

From 15 to 18 September 2018
