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.


Karmapa, Thayé Dorjé

Dear Friends,
Sunday, May 6, we will celebrate the birthday of Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa. We will dedicate the day to the practice of study, reflection, and meditation.

Furthermore, on Sunday, May 6 at 8:30 am, an episode of Sagesse Bouddhiste (in French) devoted to Karmapa will air on France 2. The UBF wished to interview him during his visit to France at Karma Migyur Ling (Montchardon) last year. The second part of the interview will air May 13.

At Dhagpo, this day will take place during Trinlay Rinpoche's course on the Fundamental Stances of the Middle Way.

In conjunction with this, we offer a two-part program for the day:

Viewing of Sagesse Bouddhiste:
Join us from 8:30 to 8:45 am in the Great Hall of the Institute to watch Karmapa's interview together.
[Note: The episodes remain watchable for one week (after they air) on France 2's Replay ]

Chenrezig Practice and Accumulation:
We will accumulate long lige prayers during the daily Tara and Chenrezig rituals, and we will additionally carry out manis accumulations:
• from 8:45 to 9:30 am in the Institute, following the viewing of Sagesse Bouddiste
• from 5 pm to 6:30 pm in the Institute

Please note that the evening's 8:30 Chenrezig session will be maintained as usual in the temple.

You are welcome to join us for this day of practice at Dhagpo or from home.

May the activity of the masters who guide and inspire us expand and develop for the benefit of beings, and may it encourage us toward virtue and kindness.

Dhagpo's Team
