PRECIOUS LAMAS AND THEIR ACTIVITIES
LIGHT DISPELLING THE DARKNESS
Without great bodhisattvas we are like a blind lost in a dark forest. Meditation masters teach us through their compassion how to liberate our mind from suffering and how to awaken unconditional happiness.
SHERAB GYALTSEN RINPOCHE
Maniwa Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, who received his Buddhist education and meditation realization under the direct guidance of the 16th Karmapa, stands behind all aktivity of NALA endowment fund. As one of few Buddhist masters of Tibetan vajrayana Buddhism finished his training both in Buddhist philosophy and deep meditation practice. The title Maniwa is given to a practitioner of Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) meditation and it means that he or she inspired people to recite more than one billion OM MANI PEME HUNG mantras. Rinpoche has built many stupas – Buddhist objects that wish good wishes of beings and balance out negative energies in the space. Many of them stand in the West, including the Enlightenment stupa in the Pilsner region of the Czech Republic.
NEDO KUCHUNG RINPOCHE
Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche was recognized by H.H. 16th Gyalwa Karmapa as the sixth incarnation of Nedo Kuchung lineage holder. Rinpoche attends to intensive meditation retreats in Sikkim, preparing realized masters of meditation for future times. Rinpoche currently builds a new meditation place in Rumtek, Sikkim. Practitioners with monks vows will be able to go on a traditional 3-year retreat, according to the tradition of Karma Kagyu, just like Rinpoche himself at the time of 16th Karmapa. Western students will also have an opportunity to deepen their meditation practice here, during shorter meditation retreats.
TULKU TSORI RINPOCHE
Tulku Tsori Rinpoche recognized himself as the incarnation of realized meditation master Yogi Tsori Rinpoche. When he was 15, he was officially recognized by H.H. the 16th Karmapa and a year later by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Tulku Tsori Rinpoche holds full transmissions of both Kagyu and Nyingma traditions. He takes active care of thousands of Tibetan refugees and practitioners in many countries of the world. His aktivity reaches from Tibet, Nepal and India to Europe and the United States.
We provide financial help for the construction of Shar Minub monastery and institute of advanced Buddhist studies in Nepal, according to the vision of H.H. Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche. The institute will be open also to lay students who will learn how to become perfect humans for the benefit of all.
LAMA OLE NYDAHL – DIAMOND WAY
It was our great pleasure and honour that we could support Karma Kagyu Diamond Way Buddhism of Lama Ole Nydahl, our first teacher of Buddhism. We participated in the renovation of Vyhlidky meditation centre in the south of CR, construction of the Enlightenment stupa in Tenovice and the construction of the city centre of Diamond Way in Prague. We are very grateful for a beautiful Dharma connection with this wonderful Lama.
