Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery
Date: Wednesday, June 22, 2011 - 7:00 pm
Duration: 2 Hours
June 22 - 26, 2011
Lama Denys Rinpoche is one of the main Dharma heirs of the late Vajradhara Kalu Rinpoche (1904-1989). Denys Rinpoche is highly appreciated for the depth and clarity of his teachings. Kagyu Thubten Choling is honored to host him for this special visit of dharma teachings.
Lama Denys first studied medicine and philosophy in France and then spent more than 15 years studying, practicing, and doing retreats under the personal guidance of Kalu Rinpoche. He became an accomplished lama and in 1985 Vajradhara Kalu Rinpoche entrusted him as Vajracarya and lineage holder. Since then he has been transmitting the Dharma in many countries. He has also directed six cycles of the traditional three-year retreat. The seventh is currently in progress in the French Alps at his main Dharma center, the Karma Ling Institute.
Denys Rinpoche founded the Rimay Sangha, a yogic community that was officially recognized by the French government in 1994, after receiving the blessing of the Kentin Tai Situ Rinpoche. Today the Rimay Sangha is an international community structured as a network of circles of practitioners called “Sangha Lokas”.
The teaching schedule is as follows:
June 22 (Wednesday) at 7 pm | Meditation For Your Daily Life

Using the meditation and mantra of Chenrezi - Buddha of Love to empower and consecrate ordinary perception, we transform our every-day experience into the purified view of enlightenment.
