After two years of a complete shutdown due to COVID 19, last year Benchen Phuntsok Ling started to opening again step-by-step for onsite courses. Yet the summer coure 2022 was still online.

Fortunately, this year's summer course will once again take place on-site!

These are the dates for the Summer Seminar 2023 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling in Allmuthen, Belgium.
We are very happy to continue the series of summer courses in Allmuthen!

Like every year the week before the actual teaching period a three-days Drölkar (White Tara) ritual will happen and after the teaching period a three-days Gönkar (White Protector) retreat will take place.

Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche has, therefore, chosen Khenpo Karma Yonten Gyatso and Lama Ngawang Tsultrim to perform the summer course onsite in Allmuthen.

Please note that this year no Zoom meeting will be offered.

Khenpo Karma Lungrig Gyatso

Khenpo Karma Yonten Gyatso is one of the Khenpos of the Benchen Nangten Thösam Ling Shedra in Pharping, Nepal.

In 1997, at the age of 11, Khenpo Karma Yonten Gyatso became one of the Benchen monks in the Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling Monastery in Kathmandu, studying all the various rituals. He received the full monk vows from the late Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche in 2005.

In 2007 he joined the Benchen Shedra in Pharping and began his studies in Buddhist philosophy. After studying intensively for more than 10 years, he graduated in 2018 and became Khenpo and since then has been teaching in the Shedra.

Khenpo Karma Yonten Gyatso will teach the "Seven Vajra Points", which are explained in "The Treatise on the Ultimate Teaching" (Skt. Uttaratantraśāstra). This text was transmitted by the Bodhisattva Maitreya to Asanga.


Lama Ngawang

Lama Ngawang Tsultrim is the Resident Lama of Europe Benchen Phuntsok Ling.

He will teach from the  "Precious Garland of the Supreme Path", a famous Mahāyāna Buddhist text, composed by the great master Jetsun Gampopa.

Based on this text Lama Ngawang will explain "The ten things which are necessary in order to practice Dharma".
Various workshops will be offered.
The teachings will be translated into English and German.
