17th Gyalwa Karmapa"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.


Study and Meditation Retreat with the Participation of Trinlay Rinpoche

Lama Jigme Rinpoche, Trinlay Rinpoche


 See the detailed program - PDF (in French)


Monday, August 28 – Thursday, August 31 

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. Over the course of this retreat, Rinpoche will continue the transmission of instructions of the four objects of mindfulness and Trinlay Rinpoche will develop on these instructions on certain afternoons. 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.

Trinlay Rinpoché was recognized as a tulku, or manifestation of a Buddhist master by the 16th Karmapa (1923-1981). He is among the rare tulkus born in the West and his dual culture makes him an exceptional teacher.
