The Great Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye (1813-1899) was the co-founder of Rime – the 19th century nonsectarian movement in Tibetan Buddhism. Being the main disciple of the 14th Karmapa and the root Lama of the 15th Karmapa, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye is also well known as the author of 'The Five Great Treasures' – the collections of the most important transmissions of various schools and his own works. These Treasures is one of the most important in Tibetan Buddhism, set of empowerments, lungs (oral transmissions) and commentaries.
In March 2014 at the request of the Benchen Monastery community, His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche kindly bestowed the rare transmission of "Chod Wang Gyatsa" (100 empowerments of Chod). Along with the empowerments Rinpoche also gave the reading transmission, a brief explanation on "Tri Yik Yeshe Lama" and others.. At the conclusion as a thanks giving ceremony the Luejin sadhana with tsok offering was conducted.
A visual record of the performance of the Luejin Sadhana you can see below.
The Buddhist Culture Centre invites everyone for the lecture by Dr. Filip Majkowski: ''The Bodhisattva Path is Fragrant with Herbs – Tibetan Medicine, Theory, Practice''.
A different look at how the body 'works'. Some people claim the Tibetan medicine to be the most effective treatment, others accuse it of being a magic. Where is the truth? We hope that the lecture will dispel the doubts.
The meeting will take place on the 26th of October 2014, at 12:00.
The Buddhist Culture Centre invites everyone for the opening of the exhibition: ''Sixteen Arhats – Tibetan Paintings (Thangkas)''.
