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.

THE 17th GYALWA KARMAPA

 Dear Friends,

In the time since Dhagpo has closed and all of France has been placed under confinement orders, we have been organizing ourselves in order to best respond to this new situation. It was important to us to offer access to the reflections that Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, shared in his most recent video. As such, we have uploaded it and included French subtitles.

We would also like to offer support for formal practice. Indeed, as Karmapa requested in his earlier message, “I recommend that everyone stay home and take part in the planned livestream practice sessions.”

Of course, there is no need for technology to be together. The simple fact of meditating unites us. Furthermore, Karmapa sent us a filmed Chenrezig practice that each individual can follow at their own rhythm. But we are well aware that gathering to practice Chenrezig meditation or Tara ritual together, even virtually, can be a precious support for those who partake and of real benefit for all beings.

Starting today and for the next fifteen days, we invite you to join us online for these two practices:

  • Each morning from 7–8: Tara ritual.
  • Each evening from 8:30–9:30: Chenrezig meditation.

(These are French hours - Please check https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/ to see local equivalent time.)

We will decide how to continue after this first step.

For the technical information on how to join, see below ↓.

Regarding manis

We propose that everyone keep track of their mantras in order to count them in one vast accumulation. Whether you practice on your own, with the support of Karmapa’s video, or during the streaming, you can send the number of 108-pearl malas you have accumulated to the following address using the form on this page. You can keep up with the total accumulation on this page.

Warmly,
Dhagpo’s Team
