Ven. Drubpön Ngawang and H. E. Tsaptrul Rinpoche

The visit

The Drukpa masters Venerable Drubpön Ngawang, His Eminence Tsaptrul Rinpoche and Lama Kunga visited the Hanseatic City from 21st to 22nd September 2009.

On both days they gave teachings about “Meditation and Visualisation“. On this occasion many participants enjoyed the opportunity to be inspired by Guru Vajrasattva. Furthermore, we celebrated a Shapten Life Release on the river Elbe on 22nd September in order to pray for a long life f H.H. This event was blessed by both H.E. Tsaptrul Rinpoche and Drubpön Ngawang.
