The grand finale: on the last day of this year’s International Summer Course, Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche gave us the precious empowerment into the main protector of the Karma Kagyu Lineage.

For the second Summer Course in a row, Nedo Rinpoche gave us the precious empowerment into the purifying energy of all Buddhas: Diamond Mind (Skt. Vajrasattva, Tib. Dorje Sempa)

The Shuttle-Welcome-Parking team took on one of the biggest challenges of the course once again – and managed gloriously! 🙂

We are very happy to welcome Rinpoche back to the Europe Center. Rinpoche started his program with an exciting lecture about the main protector of the Karma Kagyu Lineage – Black Coat.

Tony Karam, president of Casa Tibet in Mexico City, whom we already had the pleasure of listening to at the previous Summer Course, deeply inspired us again with two vivid lectures in the evening.

Lama Jigmela today gave a very special initation into the 15th Karmapa Khakyab Dorje, who was a remarkable Bodhisattva. Thousands of people came to participate in this precious event.
