Shamar Rinpoche’s passing

Dear friends,

On the 11th of June the great master HH Künzig Shamar Rinpoche suddenly passed away at his European seat in Renchen-Ulm, Germany.

We are very sad about this tremendous loss and we pray from our hearts for Shamar Rinpoche#’s swift return to this world.

Please contact the official website of HH Shamar Rinpoche if you wish to have further infomation.

Second half of 2014

Our work and activity period came to an end in August. Until the end of February we dedicate our hearts and time to sitting practice.
From the 1st of September until the 31st of October Lama Henrik guides a retreat in Marfond. And, from December until February Lama Walli will continue to guide us during another Lojong retreat. The retreat will finish off with the usual program of ten days of Mahakala practice preceeding Losar and two sang pujas.

Winter retreat with Lama Walli and tibetan new year

During this Winter, Lama Walli guided residents during a 2-month retreat period. She continued with her explanations on Lojong 7-point mind training following the commentary of the current Shamar Rinpoche. This was a very fortunate occasion for us to receive in-depth instructions on Absolute Bodhicitta and the practice of Insight (Lhaktong).

In February we practiced the traditional 10-days of Middle-Length Mahakala and Sang rituals preceeding Losar, the Tibetan New Year. On Losar day itself soon after our last practice together we went to Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in order to see the relics of Buddha Shakyamuni, which are hosted there at the moment. We were moved by the touching atmosphere as we recited many wishing prayers together, concluding our retreat period together as a group, which began in July.
