Meditation and conduct in the face of war: Video-Course with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

In two consecutive courses, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche shows us ways to overcome feelings of helplessness and powerlessness in the face of war, and instead increasingly recognise and further develop and deepen love and compassion as innate qualities within us. It is not just about the war in Ukraine, but about the cause of all wars and about recognizing and transforming our tendencies toward anger and hatred. Both videos are now available on the Kamalashila Online Campus (each separately bookable).

Englisch with translation into German.

Video course with Acharya Lama Sonam Rabgye: Paramitas in Daily Life – Meditation and Wisdom

In this video course Acharya Lama Sönam Rabgye teaches the paramitas of meditation and wisdom. The six paramitas – generosity, ethical discipline, patience, joyful diligence, meditative concentration and wisdom – are transcendent virtues which, in their perfect form, ultimately lead us beyond our worldly existence. On the way to Buddhahood they are our constant companions in daily life.

This course focuses on the paramitas of meditation and wisdom, not only from the theoretical point of view, but also with a focus on shamatha and vipashyana meditation.

Peace Prayer by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and Message of H.H. Karmapa on the War in Ukraine

By the blessings of Enlightened and Compassionate ones,
By the power of my positive actions of three times,
And my prayers of pure aspiration,
May wars, conflicts, epidemics
And all other maladies dissolve in this world,
And may the earth and all who live on this earth enjoy the abundance of wellbeing,
May all learn to live lovingly with each other.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Massage of H.H. Karmapa on the War in Ukraine

  • The Karma Kagyu Community, Germany

    In 1978 the Community, then called an association, was founded as the official representation of the Kagyu lineage in Germany as the XVI Karmapa had proposed. Its present spiritual leader is HIs Holiness, the XVII Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the youngest representative of the 900-year-old lineage of the Karmapas, the leaders of the Karma Kamtsang lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The mission of the Community is to preserve the unbroken and authentic teachings and methods of meditation of the ”oral transmission lineage“ of the Karma Kagyu tradition, to pass them on to our modern society in a contemporary way, and to support Karmapa’s activities.

  • His Holiness, the XVII Gyalwang Karmapa

    H.H., the XVII Karmapa, is the spiritual head of the 900-year old Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He is regarded as one of the most important spiritual architects of our modern times. The Karmapa plays a vital role in the preservation and modernization of Tibetan Buddhist spirituality and culture. Among other things, Karmapa initiated a historic development for the empowerment of women in Tibetan Buddhism, the goal leading to full ordination for women. Described as one of the most significant “spiritual guides of the 21st century”, the XVII Karmapa has inspired millions of people throughout the world as a teacher, an artist, a poet, and as an environmental activist.
