In the Southern World is a sacred place of Dharma where the New Sun is shinning.

The blessing of Dharma that was on the roof of the world they now realise.

May this same truth return to the land surrounded by snowcapped-mountains.

Almost 900 years ago the first consciously reborn Yogi of Tibet renowned as the “Knower of the Three Times” the great Karmapa Dusum Khyenpa established his main seat of activity in a remote place in the Kham region near Chamdo in Tibet and gave it the name Karma Guen. Its beauty and power became famous for centuries and are still known today.

With each incarnation the activity of this King of Yogis has shown countless beings their path to enlightenment.

The vision and blessing of the great 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje gave birth to a place that today stands as his boundless activity rooted in the western world.

As he predicted, Karma Guen in the Andalusian Mountains is now the place of power in which beings meet the timeless wisdom of Buddha’s teachings in the uninterrupted oral transmission of the Karma Kagyu Lineage being one of its over 900 Buddhist Centers worldwide.

Through the immense generosity and devotion of Dorrit and Pedro Gomez to their teachers, Karma Guen was established by Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje.
