"Buddhism is a way of life through which we develop the qualities of our mind. This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.THE 17th GYALWA KARMAPA
Lama Jigme Rinpoche
Wednesday, April 19–Sunday, April 23
Meeting The Masters
We will continue the cycle of meditation retreats; the aim of the yearly retreats with Lama Jigme Rinpoche is to give us the means to acquire correct understanding of ourselves and the world and to train in authentic meditation. Each day, Rinpoche will give practice instructions and guide meditation. This course is accessible for beginners as well as those already familiar with meditation.
Born in 1949, Jigme Rinpoche received directly from the 16th Karmapa the entirety of the transmissions. After 30 years spent in Europe, Rinpoche has acquired a profound knowledge of Westerners. His teaching and his example inspire practitioners and all who meet him across the world. Today, he is the General Secretary of the 17th Karmapa and the author of numerous works that render Buddhism accessible to all.
Certain of his teachings have been transcribed and are available in the form of booklets. (Booklets available)
