Dear Friends,

Tuesday, June 11th 2024 marks the tenth Parinirvana anniversary of the 14th Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche according to the Western calendar. For those who cannot be at Renchen Ulm, where Thayé Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, will lead the commemoration pujas, you can join us at Dhagpo in person or participate in part of the program online. More information is provided below.

Regarding Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche’s Parinirvana day, Karmapa has shared the following advice with his students on several occasions:

” We must utilise this day and take time to remember his life, his activity, his legacy, the contribution that has been made to the world. Just like many great beings that we know throughout history, and in our present day, the life of His Holiness Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche has been a tremendous source of inspiration for all of us.

We remember his ability and determination to protect and preserve the very lineage that we know. This, of course, is not just any lineage, but a lineage of compassion and wisdom: a lineage for the teachings of Lord Buddha; the teachings that have survived; the teachings that have developed for over 2500 years; and are developing as we speak. These teachings have been brought to the various regions of the world. Buddhist teachings have now reached everywhere across the globe, and are benefiting countless beings through a message of compassion and wisdom. Countless beings are realising the benefit of such timeless teachings, of such timeless practice, a practice that doesn’t require any effort at all. “

About the 14th Shamarpa’s Last Teachings:

Shamar Rinpoche gave his last teaching at Renchen Ulm (Germany), in 2014, a few days before he entered Parinirvana. Rinpoche taught on the practice of lojong based on the text A Concise Lojong Manual by the 5th Shamar Rinpoche Könchok Yenlak. These last teachings are also presented in Bringing Mind Training to Life.
