Day 1 – Introductory Lecture by Lama Ole Nydahl

On July 27th, many months of planning and five weeks of building up for the start of the Summer Course came to a very happy end.

Lama Ole Nydahl was greeted by thousands of people in the big gompa tent, opening the 23rd International Summer Course, already at the Europe Center for the eighth year now.

We think it is not exaggerated to say that this year’s program is many dreams come true at the same time. To celebrate what we have achieved together, H.H. the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje, Lama Jigme Rinpoche, Lama Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche and of course Lama Ole will come together at the EC. Gyalwa Karmapa is going to inaugurate the new buildings, give teachings and the first empowerments from the Chik She Kun Drol empowerment cycle. As if that was not more than enough great gifts already, Lama Jigmela, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche , Lama Ole and Diamond Way teachers are going to give teachings and guide meditations as well.

Welcome home, friends from all over the world – let’s celebrate!
