8th Karmapa Retreat in Karma Guen

Nedo Rimpoche 8th Karmapa Course in Karma Guen

8th Karmapa course is a regular event in Karma Guen which  focuses especially on the practice on 8th Karmapa.

You can take part in the meditation retreat on 8th Karmapa and attend the lectures about this practice only if you finished your first Ngondro. The program offers also other teachings and enough space for meditation, so everybody can come and take part in the program suitable for themselves. 

At this years 8th Karmapa course, Nedo Rinpoche will give several initiations including Dorje Phagmo and Khorlo Demchok. All initiations can be attended by everyone. 

The exciting program from September 16th until 25th, also includes the popular study course with Kerstin Pramme and Manfred Seegers, and a full day with Rinpoche at the Stupa in Benalmadena.

As mentioned, you can take part in the meditation retreat on 8th Karmapa and attend the lectures about this practice only if you finished your first Ngondro.

However, you are warmly welcome to join the course also if you have not finished your first Ngondro yet!

Besides the initiations which will be open for everybody, we will have separated gompa for Ngondro meditations, as well as common program open for everybody every day.

 

Because the program of Lama Ole Nydahl has changed and he will not come to the course, Nedo Rinpoche has agreed to join the retreat a few days earlier to meditate with us and give various teachings.

Nedo Rinpoche will give the initiations as a blessing for all of us, and for the 8th Karmapa practitioners the initiations will be given as a support for the practice.

The registration is not opened yet, however we will inform you immediately when the registration link is ready.

Stay tuned, more details coming soon!
Come again to Karma Guen.

Note that the Early Payment discount and Supported Price deadline is August 15th.
We are looking very much forward to seeing you all in Karma Guen during the best part of the Spanish summer.
 
Yours
Karma Guen Team

PROGRAM 8TH KARMAPA COURSE IN KARMA GUEN

Nedo Rimpoche

Nedo Rinpoche was born in 1962 in India. H.H. 16. Gyalwa Karmapa recognized him as the sixth reincarnation in the supreme Nedo Kulha Lineage. Until he was 18 years old he got his education and transmissions from and under H.H. the 16. Karmapa in Rumtek Monastery. Then he studied in Ladakh and after three years came back to Rumtek for a three-year retreat, where he practiced the tantras of Marpa’s tradition, the six yoga’s of Naropa and Mahamudra and other different transmissions.

Apart from H.H. the 16. Gyalwa Karmapa his main teachers were Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Riwa Saljay Rinpoche, Urgyen Tulku, Tsurpu Dupon Dechen Rinpoche and Boukar Rinpoche as his retreat master.

At the age of 25 the four lineage holders enthroned him as the Vajramaster of Rumtek monastery.

Today Nedo Rinpoche is the main Vajramaster of H.H. the 17. Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje.

Until today Nedo Rinpoche has the responsibility for Shamar Rinpoches monks as well as the full responsibility for all the activities of the Karma Kagyu lineage in Sikkim for H.H. the 17. Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje.

Nedo Rinpoche has one monastery in Sikkim and also in Kham (Tibet) with more than 150 lamas and monks which he takes care for together with Nedo Dechen Rinpoche.
