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.


Center for buddhist studies and meditation






Who are we?
“Dhagpo Kagyu Ling”, founded in 1975, is the European seat of the Karma Kagyü school, one of the four lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, represented by the 17th Karmapa. More than forty years later, we are, today, a vast community continuing to grow. Almost seventy satellite centers in France are connected to Dhagpo.
What do we offer? 
Our goal is to preserve the Buddha’s teachings and make them accessible to the greatest number of people possible. Anyone can come here to discover Buddhist philosophy and meditation, to find answers to the questions of modern society: how to  reduce stress, to give more meaning to one’s life, and how to live in harmony with oneself and others.
What makes us different?
Dhagpo’s wealth lies in Tibetan masters that thoroughly understand the Western mindset, Buddhist teachers trained in France, and constantly evolving courses designed to respond to the needs of students. This ancient, non-dogmatic wisdom takes a new look at the challenges of daily life.
