The 2016 Europe Center Summer Course

Every year in August, thousands of Diamond Way Buddhists gather at the Europe Center near Immenstadt in southern Germany for the annual Summer Course.

This year’s two-week course began with lectures by Lama Ole Nydahl and Diamond Way teachers. Further highlights include an empowerment into Guru Rinpoche given by Lopon Dorji Rinchin Rinpoche from Bhutan, who is teaching at the Europe Center for the first time, and empowerments into Diamond Mind and the second Karmapa Karma Pakshi, given by Lama Jigme Rinpoche.
