Tyresö Retreat Center in Sweden
Tyresö, The place to realize the Dharma
Wow, the Europe Center, such a wonderful place, such energy, inspiring people, activities and above all fantastic, powerful, wise and endlessly compassionate Lamas.
We got lots of support in the form of wishes, donations and people who bought a lot of the t-shirts, malas and lottery tickets we brought. We offered everyone rice blessed by 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje and the famous Tyresö tattoo, which you could see on many shoulders and some other more exciting body parts. ;)
We told the story of the first ever retreat center in southern Sweden, which didn’t last so long, yet the wishes of the 16th Karmapa and Lama Ole remained. Those timeless wishes became a new opportunity to make a Swedish retreat center a reality. During the Stockholm course in March 2017, Lama Ole Nydahl blessed the land and gave instructions for the project.
Three months later, we were honoured by the 17th Karmapa visiting and blessing Tyresö, and giving it the Tibetan name “Karma Jangchup Choling” or “The place to realize the Dharma”.
Right now we are in the process of negotiating the price for the new land, now that the owner has finally decided to sell after many months of us waiting for his decision. That happened during the EC course and we feel the blessing of Karmapa and Lama Ole with all the wishes from our friends.
With a very happy and grateful heart full of love for all our friends, we thank you and looking forward to meeting you again. May you all happily reach enlightenment and benefit all beings without exception.
