His Eminence Thuksey Rinpoche to visit in January
We are happy to announce that His Eminence Kyabje Thuksey Rinpoche will be visiting London in January 2015.
The previous Thuksey Rinpoche was the first guru of His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa and we are especially delighted to welcome His Eminence now on the occasion of his first visit to the UK.
6th Annual Drukpa Council
As taught by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa, the entire practice of Buddhism is to inspire the practitioners to open their hearts so that the blessing/understanding will be there without any obstacle or difficulty. The focus of teachings and practices such as chanting, spiritual dances, spiritual yoga, recitations, pujas, etc. is to inspire us to achieve an understanding mind, which also known as the Mind or Heart of Enlightenment.
Programme with Khenmo Tingdzin
We are very fortunate to have His Holiness's nun Khenmo Tingdzin staying with us in London for a few months. During her stay His Holiness has requested her to teach us in detail on the various practices - mudras, visualisations, melodies etc
We have set up the following preliminary schedule for this:
Saturday 18 October: 11am to 1pm
Teachings on Sengey Tsewa (melodies, mudras, etc). This will be followed by our usual Sengey Tsewa tsok practice from 3 to 5pm. (If you are attending the Sengey Tsewa Tsok in the afternoon, could you please bring some offerings for the Tsok?)
Saturday 25 October: 11am to 5pm
Guru Yoga, starting with the Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind Towards the Dharma
