    Biography

    Biography

    His Eminence Kyabje Thuksey Rinpoche whose name means « precious son of the heart », leads many activities and also has responsibility of the monastery of Darjeeling in India. He has however accepted Drubpön Ngawang Tenzin’s invitation and will honour us with his presence during the new year’s retreat.

    The introduction to the 37 practices of the Bodhisattva is a hommage to Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezi) but also to the Guru. As Atisha said, all the qualities, small or vast, come from the Guru.

    This teaching was given by Guru Thokme Zangpo.

    We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome him and to practice in his presence.

    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.
