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.


Commemoration of Shamar Rinpoche's Parinirvana




Friday, June 11

As Gyalwa Karmapa said when Shamarpa passed into parinirvana, “Rinpoche continues to be our teacher, and his wishes and blessing are always with us.

Throughout his whole life, he accomplished bodhisattva activity, carrying out the benefit of beings beyond what we can imagine.”

Seven years after Shamar Rinpoche passed away, we pay homage to him with a day of 14th Shamar Rinpoche’s Guru Yoga practice. We will close with an offering feast to Amitabha.
