This year marked 10 years of the Summer Course at the Europe Center, and 25 years of the annual course, previously held near Kassel Germany. Over 3,500 Diamond Way Buddhist practitioners from more than 50 countries attended.
We had a full schedule this year, with Mahamudra lectures by Lama Ole Nydahl, and Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche giving lectures and the empowerments into Loving Eyes and Mahakala, as well as guiding a spontaneous day of Loving Eyes meditation for everyone.
A further highlight of the course was the program with Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche. This was his first visit to the Europe Center, where he gave the empowerments into Diamond Mind and White Tara. He holds the position of Vajra Master (high spiritual teacher) of Rumtek Monastery, and is responsible for Karma Kagyu lineage activity in Sikkim, under the guidance of Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.
The Europe Center, near Immenstadt Germany, is the international meeting point for Diamond Way Buddhists, and hosts the Summer Course every year. The course is organised and run by volunteers, and attended by thousands of practitioners from around the world.
