Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, Pema Wangyal Rinpoche,
Tsawa Rinam Rinpoche, Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche,
and the Lamas and monks of Pema Ewam Tcheugar Gyurme Ling Monastery

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 Sportif de Lembrun 47110 Le-Temple-Sur-Lot

Ratna Vajra Sakya Rinpoche

Visit to Europe of

His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche

The 42nd Sakya Trinzin

We are honoured and delighted to announce the visit of Ratna Vajra Rinpoche in Europe. Rinpoche is the eldest son of His Holiness Sakya Trizin and a descendant of the Khon family of Tibet who founded the order of the Sakya in the 11th and 12th centuries. Since his early childhood, he has followed the traditional intensive training of the holders of this lineage. After his formation, he in turn transmits the teachings of the different aspects of Buddhist philosophy and practice. He teaches with brilliance and clarity, with an excellent command of English.

In 2017, Ratna Vajra Rinpoche will inherit his father's position as the holder of the throne of the Sakya lineage, thus becoming the 42nd Sakya Trizin.

Khenchen Pema Sherab

From 10 to 29 July 2017

 Teaching on
"The Precious Wish-Fulfilling Treasure"
Khenchen Pema Sherab

The Precious Wish-Fulfilling Treasure (yid bzhin rin po che'i mdzod) is one of the Seven Treasures of Longchenpa, the Omniscient King of Dharma (1308-1364). These Treasures, which are among Longchenpa’s greatest works, explain with unequaled brilliance the entire Dharma according to the perspective of the Great Perfection. The Wish-fulfilling Treasure, usually considered to be the first of the seven, is accompanied by an auto-commentary entitled the White Lotus. It discusses the structure of the world, the nature of beings, ultimate reality, the methods for liberating oneself from samsara, the gradual stages of the path and the fruit of meditation. Khenchen Pema Sherab began six years ago to give very detailed teachings on this text, and will continue in the coming years. Beginning at 09h30, Monday 10 July, the teachings will be given every morning with the exception of Sunday 16 July and Sunday 23 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
