Ven. Drubpön Ngawang's letter

The venerable Drubpön Ngawang Tenzin

I would like to convey to you all my best wishes for this New Year of the Earth Dog.

Last year, His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa honoured us with His presence. Under His guidance we attended a Yangtik retreat with a new text, and also the inauguration of the Lama Lhakhang. Everything went very smoothly and I submitted to His Holiness the request that He may come again next August.

As you know, His Eminence Bairo Rinpoche passed into Parinirvana in France, and His Holiness and Mayum La decided that the 49-day mourning period and cremation should take place at Drukpa Plouray. On this occasion, His Holiness Kathok Getse Rinpoche, along with lamas and nuns from Bhutan and Nepal, came and fi lled this period with a daily intensity of prayers, tsok and light off erings, and showers of blessings, in a great accumulation of merit for us all and for the Centre.

From the depth of my heart, I express my gratitude to His Holiness and Mayum La for their trust. Despite their deep sorrow, they were so very happy with the involvement and devotion of all those present.

I personally wish to thank the monastic community, the residents, the board members, and the members of the diff erent European and British sanghas for their help and contribution. The unwavering and unfailing energy of many persons has touched my heart in profound admiration.

In conclusion, I would like to remind you that our future life is in the making at this very moment. It is essential for us to show discipline and perseverance. My wish is that every one may do their utmost to attend at least once a year a retreat organized by the Centre.

With all my prayers.

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.
