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,
 
We are happy to be able to share the latest news with you about Dhagpo’s program for the coming weeks.

Couverture du programme de Dhagpo - été 2020The conclusion of the confinement period varies from one country to another. For the moment, the French government has spoken of a progressive deconfinement that will begin May 11 and involve gradual starting up of the country’s suspended activities. For the moment, we don’t yet know when Dhagpo Kagyu Ling will reopen its doors, nor when the typical program can pick up. At present, we foresee that the center will remain closed to the public until the end of June. As we will not be able to carry out the program as planned onsite, all courses and retreats are cancelled up through the end of June. (Those registered for May courses will be reimbursed for their payments without being individually contacted.) Furthermore, registration for the summer program, which was planned to begin May 13, is pushed back to an unknown date; we will keep you posted based on how the situation evolves.

Meanwhile, we offer you an alternative program available online in video form.
 
Lama Jigmé RinpochéLama Jigme Rinpoche will share a weekly teaching so that each of us may receive useful practice instructions wherever we may be. From April 26 to June 28, Rinpoche will give a teaching each Sunday morning from 10 to 11:30 am (Paris time), available through Dhagpo’s Youtube Channel. We have decided on non-simultaneous English to French translation, which allows for a slower rhythm and, therefore, more focused listening.

- A simultaneous Spanish-language translation will be available on this other Youtube channel.  
- The German-language translation will be available here: Youtube DKL- WEB. 

In general, when we physically attend this type of teaching, we take part in course fees that cover the expenses the center incurs to make Dharma transmission possible. In light of the current circumstances and the transmission via Youtube intended for the greatest number of people possible, these teachings will be open-access and free of charge. 

Of course, it is still possible to support Dhagpo’s KDC Congregation—whose activity has been on hold since March 16—by making a (non tax-deductible) donation via Paypal or bank wire (see the information below for details).

This alternate program continues in parallel with daily Green Tara and Chenrezig meditations, from 7–8 am and 8:30–9:30 pm, respectively, on Youtube and Zoom (visit Dhagpo’s website for more information).

Wishing to join many of you virtually, together with Lama Jigme Rinpoche,

Dhagpo’s Team
