The Benchen Karma Kamtsang Buddhist Association in Poland gathers practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism of Karma Kamtsang tradition, known also under the name Karma Kagyu.
The highest spiritual authority of the school is His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa. Our Association is under direct guidance of the Benchen Monastery and its abbots, His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Most Venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche, being among most eminent Lamas of the Karma Kamtsang school.
On March 5, 2014 a delegation of officials of the Benchen Monastery administration had an audience with H.H. Karmapa in Benares for the purpose of informing His Holiness that both of Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's relic stupas, the one in the Tara shrine room of the Benchen Monastery in Kathmandu and the other in Parphing in the Benchen retreat area, are completed.
The visit will take place in Germany from 25th May until 9th June 2014.
