If one looks at what Rinpoche has been doing summer after summer in Europe, I think this is definitely part of His game-plan. And receiving the entire Dudjom Tersar is also the game-plan of at least one of His European hosts.

Two years ago, I invited Rinpoche to teach in the U.S. and He graciously accepted. Then, for a variety of reasons having to do with other Teachers and some health issues, I didn't follow through on that. At the moment, it's still not possible. But I can say that Rinpoche is definitely willing to come to the U.S. to teach, or at least He was in the summer of 2015.
If you get the opportunity I would recommend you do so. I imagine you know it but for those that do not: Rinpoche is a solid and respected teacher (and a lovely person) that works hard for the preservation of the Dudjom lineage. His wife is a serious (and low key) practitioner (and also a lovely person) too.

Agreed. Have studied with Rinpoche the last two summers at Enrico's outside of Graz. Rinpoche is also my own Root Guru's (Lama Dawa) best friend from when They were students together at Sanskrit University.

A small change of schedule for the July 11th – July 19th – Warszawa, Poland seminar.

Rinpoche will give the empowerment of his mind treasure of Kali Nagmo instead of Mahadeva.

Needless to say: I AM STOKED!!! :woohoo:

If you have a Facebook profile you can find Marek Yaksa, he is the organiser for Prague.

I have contacted him again for details and am awaiting a reply, which I will post here.

There have been some important changes to LOTR's Poznan retreat schedule as well. Right now there are two retreats to be held there, actually: the first one takes place June 30th-July 9th and is devoted to Khandro Thugthig/Throma Nagmo; the other one is presently scheduled for 21st July-25th and will feature teachings on Karma Simhamukha. More information on FB.

And more good news: A religious association has now been set up in Warsaw, Poland with Rinpoche as the President. This means that Rinpoche will now be able to be issued a long-term visa for the EU and will be spending much more time in Europe supporting the local Sangha. :twothumbsup:

Ah, so it has already been established? I have heard that the process is still in progress. Fantastic news, in any any case.

Some photos from the (absolutely brilliant) Warsaw event.

Many thanks to the organiser Pawel for a great job, to Palchen for his hard work, to Andrzej for his fantastic translating and interpreting (a brilliant grasp of Tibetan, English and Polish left everyone more than happy) and of course to Rinpoche

And let us not forget Rinpoche's wife, a great lama too, Amala.

Oh, and the participants, of course, for their ability to make vast quantities of meat and alcohol completely disappear!

Thanks for the pictures, it looks great. Someone may have asked already, but does Rinpoche have any plans to come to the US anytime soon?

Rinpoche does not "plan" to go anywhere. People get organised, invite him, pay for his transport, accommodation and food and then he comes. He has been to the US in the past. I can chase down the organisers and you can bust their chops if you wish...

Or, if you want to be sure, you can talk to some people and together you can invite him. ;)

Cool pics. I have this desire to do Dharma travel and just fly around the world attending teachings and retreats. Especially in Europe, for some reason. :shrug: I guess if I can get enough advance notice of events it could happen one day. Suggestions would be awesome. :bow:

Well, Rinpoche is going to need an assistant in Europe next year, so... :smile:

Be prepared for making LOTS of torma...
