Rinpoche has just spent a week in his new Centre in Berlin.
Here are some recent photos taken by Francois, of the Bodhicharya centre in Berlin, including the 'laying of the first stone ceremony' of their new temple. Salga, Rinpoche's brother is now there to paint the shrine room. A great thank you to Francois for these photos.
Also from Margaret Richardson of the Rigul Trust, who was also there:
'It was a memorable visit to Bodhicharya Berlin. The setting of the vase of precious mineral etc, that had been blessed in Sikkim, in the base of the site of one of the pillars for the new temple, was blessed again by Rinpoche, Lama Soga, Lama Shenga and a Lama I don't know the name of.
Salga had an exhibition of some of his thankas and gave a talk.
There was a great warmth of welcome among the Berlin sangha. The teachings that Rinpoche gave were on The Aspiration Prayer of Mahamudra from Rangjung Dorje 3rd Karmapa
I was also very impressed by the hospice work that the sangha are engaged with in the community'.
