Lama Zopa Rinpoche very early announced his intention to come to Munich: in October 2016 in Italy, when many students took the opportunity to see His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Milan. Now the time has come. Preparations are in full swing to welcome Lama Zopa adequately. We are pleased to give everyone interested the opportunity to participate in this special event.

The lapis lazuli-blue medicine buddha (tib. sangye menla) embodies the healing quality of our own mind. Medicine Buddha is helpful not only in removing obstacles on the way to enlightenment, but also with physical illnesses. The practice purifies our karma and promotes inner peace and tranquility. Also at the time of death the practice of the Medicine Buddha is very helpful as it purifies negative karma. Lama Zopa Rinpoche leads and gives the initiation.
