  • His Eminence Thuksey Rinpoche to visit London in February

    We are happy to announce that His Eminence Kyabje Thuksey Rinpoche will be coming to London in February 2017

    Born in Ladakh in 1986, His Eminence Kyabje Thuksey Rinpoche was recognised by H.H. 14th Dalai Lama and H.H. 12th Gyalwang Drukpa as the reincarnation of the first Kyabje Thuksey Rinpoche – a prominent figure in Himalayan Buddhism during the last century. After his exile from Tibet, he ensured the continuity, legacy and teaching of the Drukpa School of Buddhism, establishing one of its main monasteries, Druk Thubten Sangag Choeling, in Darjeeling India.

    His Eminence Thuksey Rinpoche spent most of his childhood in this monastery before continuing his education for nine years at the prestigious Tango University in Bhutan. An accomplished meditation master, His Eminence has taken on many responsibilities including the management of the monastery in Darjeeling, the Druk Pema Karpo School - an award-winning educational project in Ladakh, and the Drukpa centres of Buddhist studies and meditation in Europe. He is an articulate advocate of compassion in action, having also set up an animal sanctuary in the Himalayas.

    His Eminence is part of the young generation of spiritual Masters who bring a contemporary and modern approach to Buddhism and spirituality. He speaks fluent English and is able to teach from a depth of realisation, communicating the essence of spiritual teachings in an engaging manner.

  • Naropa 2016

     

    Once every twelve years, in the fifth lunar month of the Monkey year, half a million people from across the Himalayas gather in Ladakh, India, to celebrate Naropa’s life in one of the largest events of the decade. Also known as the “Kumbh Mela of Himalayas,” this month-long festival includes several rare cultural events that are believed to grant spiritual liberation upon sight. This includes the ceremonial unfurling of one of the greatest regional treasures – an ancient silk embroidery of Guru Padmasambhava that stretches to several stories in height, a beloved devotional art piece which is only ever displayed to public audiences during the Naropa festivities.

    The Naropa events also mark the largest assembly of Drukpa masters and includes cultural performances by prominent Himalayan artists representing the wider Drukpa community. The culminating event is the display of the famed sacred Six Bone Ornaments belonging to Naropa, the 11th century Indian saint, by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa, head of the Drukpa Order. The Six Bone Ornaments are amongst the holiest treasures of the Himalayas, and are the symbolic origin of many of the foundational practices of Himalayan Buddhism.

    The Naropa events are considered unmissable by the hundreds of thousands who attend.

    In accordance with the wishes of His Holiness, Drubpön Ngawang, His representative in Europe, is organising a group tour to Ladakh to celebrate Naropa 2016.
