We are delighted to announce the visit of one of the most eminent meditation masters of the modern age Tulku Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche to Russia and Ukraine. The teacher will be giving teachings on how to reduce stress in our daily lives, how to learn to live in harmony with ourselves and with others, as well as how to transform one’s mind by means of Buddhist meditation.

Upon his arrival in Ukraine, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche will announce this year’s teaching topic. He has decided, however, that the teachings will be related to the three distinct ways of cultivating learning, reflection, and meditation in Tibetan Buddhism: 1) studies on the view, 2) meditation on the pith instruction, 3) and the transference of blessings.

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche will bestow the empowerment of Vajrakilaya in Ukraine for the first time. Vajrakilaya, a wrathful yidam deity, is practiced widely in many Nyingma and Kagyu schools, capable of removing specific obstacles by the wrathful means of subjugation. This single form of Vajrakilaya, among the practices of the Three Roots (guru, yidam, and dakini), is that of a yidam – the root of all accomplishments.

Our Teacher

The name Chokyi Nyima can be translated in English as “The Sun of Buddhist Teaching”. Rinpoche is a Buddhist lama who is considered to be a seventh reincarnation of the Tibetan master Gar Drubchen and also emanation of the Indian master and philosopher of the II centure Nagarjuna.

Rinpoche completed a full course of Buddhist studies under the guidance of the most renowned masters of his time. He is the author of many Buddhist books, namely “The Bardo Guidebook”, “Present Fresh Wakefulness” and “Medicine and Compassion”.

He has been teaching meditation to people from Europe, USA and other parts of the world, starting from 1977. From time to time, he also gives talk at the most prominent universities in the world, namely Oxford and Harvard.

«There´s no greater foolishness than to spend one´s lifetime acknowledging that one is deluded and yet doing nothing whatsoever about it»

«Freedom means no fear. If there is fear there is no free. If there is shy there is no free. How to be free from fear? One must develop great love and great compassion. Loving, kindness and great compassion is the root of fearlessness»

«We may shout, ‘Let there be peace!’ but this won’t really bring peace. Peace will appear in the world around us only when each individual learns to tame the disturbances arising within his or her own mind»

«When someone whose heart is troubled and worried is, out of true affection and kindness, told “Relax, don’t worry,” this statement helps and can make a big difference»
