Dhagpo Kagyu Ling –
Since its simple beginnings at Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in 1976, the mandala of the Karma Kagyu lineage in Europe has expanded in accordance with specific instructions left behind by His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.
Placing Gendun Rinpoche in charge and appointing Jigme Rinpoche as his European representative, His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa said it was necessary to build a center open to the public, a library, a university, a monastic hermitage and a retreat centre, if an authentic transmission and long term preservation of the Dharma were to take place.
Since that time, the Sangha has worked tirelessly, striving to fulfil his wishes and allowing all those interested in listening to, contemplating and meditating on the Dharma to do so according to their aspiration and capacity.
