The Drikung Garchen Institute is a Drikung Kagyu center in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition under the spiritual guidance of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche. We offer teachings, seminars, regular meditations and meditation retreats.
We are currently updating this website. Some content may not be available at this time. We apologise for this inconvenience.
The highlight of the year is of course the visit of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, the spiritual director of our center. He will be in Munich from September 5th till 24th, 2014.
After the Yamantaka Drubchen (Sept. 5-15, 2014) H.E. Garchen Rinpoche will do a lecture, two teachings and for the first time in Europa give a Kalachakra empowerment (Sept. 19-20,2014) as well as guide a Guru Rinpoche Drubchod (Sept 21-24,2014). Here are more details about the program (from Sept. 16-24,2014) and his travelling schedule.
Drubpon Tsering Rinpoche leads various retreats and meditation courses almost every month, suitable for beginners as well as for advanced practitioners. He also guides day retreats like the White Dzambhala day retreat on July 26th, 2014.
For more details please click on "program" or on "weekly meditations".
On the 6th March we start again with the discussion groups about the "Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva" with Jürgen Drews. They are on Thursdays, 7pm-8pm, twice a month.
H.E. Garchen Rinpoche considers these Practices as essential for all his students. We therefore recommend that all newcomers study the teachings on the Practices of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche in advance.
We are looking for volunteers for different kind of work at our center. Please contact us if you have the time and opportunity to help us. details
