Ven. Drubpön Ngawang's letter

The venerable Drubpön Ngawang Tenzin

As we now enter the year of the fi re bird, I would like to convey my best wishes to you all.

For years now, I have been striving to off er a program both rich and diverse, and it has given me great satisfaction to see so many people follow these activities, accumulating merit and progressing on the spiritual path.

Last September saw the “Ceremonies of Naropa” held in Ladakh for the fourth time, a fl awlessly conducted event which was attended by more than 150 000 people. Personally, I am delighted to have been able to attend all four ceremonies.

At the new year, we were extremely fortunate to receive His Eminence Kyabje Drukpa Thuksey Rinpoche who visited the European centres, benefitting all those present through his presence and teachings.

Next August, our good fortune will continue as we celebrate the thousand-year legacy of Naropa in the presence of His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa who will also inaugurate the Lama Lhakang which hosts more than 300 statues of masters of the Drukpa lineage.

This year, Plouray centre will continue to off er a program of activities and I greatly encourage you to do your utmost to attend the retreats. As the Buddha said, it is essential “to listen, refl ect then practice.” Furthermore, the benefits of practicing in a group in a monastic location are greater than practicing on one’s
own.

Those who practice Dharma are preparing for the next life which is more important than this present one. Experience has taught me that the most important thing is not to become discouraged and to persevere in one’s practice

With my prayers.
Drubpön Ngawang Tenzin Pagsam Yongdu
Representative of His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa in Europe

Le bonheur est déjà là

New Book of His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa

Title : Happiness is a State of Mind
How to Create Space for Hapiness in Your Life

What does happiness mean to us? Where does it come from? Can we really decide to be happy?

We are all chasing happiness. We spend our lives searching for that one thing we think will finally make us happy; that promotion at work, those amazing shoes, having the perfect home. But is happiness something deeper than that, more fundamental? How can this deeper happiness be achieved?

His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa reveals that the secret to happiness lies in the mind. Exploring the simple ways we can train our minds to recognise a happiness that is already there, he gives us the tools to calm anxiety, let go of expectations and embrace an appreciation for life as it is, rather than as we feel it should be.

Happiness is a State of Mind is the toolbox you need to live a more fulfilling life.

Choose to make today a happy day.
