Maniwa Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche arrived at the Europe Center on Thursday, August 8th and he gave an action-packed 3-day program to thousands of friends that joined the International Summer Course this year.
In the morning, it was time to say goodbye to Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, with lots of thankfulness and joy from all of us here at the EC.
On Monday Sherab Gyaltsen gave the Sojong vows for the coming 24 hours to those who wished to take it. What followed was an intense day of meditation practice and an enriching experience of acting with greater awareness than usual.
Two empowerments given by Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche in one weekend: today, we received the initiation into the main protector of the Karma Kagyu Lineage: Black Coat (Skt. Mahakala).
Maniwa Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche today gave us the great gift of an empowerment into his own main meditation aspect: Loving Eyes (Skt. Avalokiteshvara, Tib. Chenrezig), the Compassion of all Buddhas.
Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche inspected the Europe Center’s “Porter’s Lodge” this morning. The little house next to the old entrance gate is to become the home of a big prayer wheel.
It would be wonderful to be able to share all the precious teachings we are getting every single day at the moment from Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche and Lama Ole Nydahl…
Besides the precious teachings we are getting from the lamas, there is of course even so much more to the Summer Course than that. For example, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche goes for a walk almost every day
It amazes us every time our teachers are at the Europe Center how suddenly things seem to flow so much easier. We are so lucky to have two whole weeks in their presence before us!
