THE 17th GYALWA KARMAPA

Dear Friends,

Here is the latest update concerning Dhagpo Kagyu Ling’s activity during the continued evolution of the Covid-19 epidemic.

The lockdown period concluded this Monday. The government laid out a plan to gradually reopen the country’s activity. It established numerous directives intended for the public and also for institutions that receive the public such as Dhagpo Kagyu Ling. As things stand, the center must respect a protocol that includes numerous measures and recommendations to guarantee the protection of people’s health and security..

As this protocol advises, the application of these measures requires reflection in advance, and Dhagpo’s community has taken the time to do this. Upon reflection, we have concluded that the necessary hygiene and security measures are especially restrictive and difficult to apply in our situation.

We have already shared with you that the center will be closed through the end of June and will offer an alternative program via video.

We have since made the decision to stay closed through the end of July, as all of the retreats and courses are automatically cancelled during this time. 

We are currently preparing a continuation of the online alternative program. Of course, we will keep you informed about this as soon as it is ready.
 

Naturally, we remain alert to the evolution of the situation. We do not yet know what will be decided for the month of August. It will depend on the circumstances following the lifting of the lockdown.
Due to this, the date for opening registration for the summer program—scheduled for May 13—is currently cancelled and pushed back to an as yet undecided date. At the end of June, we will consider the evolution of things and make decisions about August’s activities. If the situation allows for it, we will then share the new start date for registration.

Despite the physical distance, we are happy to see how many of you are participating in the online rituals and teachings.
