Lama Chimed Rigdzin, born in Tibet, came to the west in 2002. He then has come to understand how necessary it is to have a space of peace so that Buddhist practitioners from any part of the world can find the Buddhist tradition and culture from Tibet, meditate and practice to fin their own Buddha Nature. Then, with the blessings from his Lama in Tibet, Lama Chimed searched and found this place of peace to plant the seeds of the Buddha Dharma. And so the Buddhist Center Shiwa Gonpa Dorje Chokhor Ling was born.
The Lama announces that he will enter a 100-day retreat, starting April 29th, 2017. During this time, only his personal disciples will be able to contact him.
May all benefit. Tashi delek!
Gesar Dance on Tuesday, February 13th, 2018. Starts at 10am.
Lama Chimed Rigdzin teaches that Gesar Dance and practice are very important at this time. This time is called the Degenerate time because, we, humans, have been engaging in negative actions and thoughts, walking the negative path. That means the degeneration is not due to the time itself, but due to the negativity amongst us, humans. This engagement in negative deeds and thoughts comes from the influence of negative local beings. For this reason, Gesar is so important, as he has the power to subdue such negativities, making peace in the world.
