2014 Eco Pad Yatra For Peace

Connect & Reconnect

In the daily motion of our life, we whisk through details and take quick chances, without paying attention to the environment and the beings around us. We need to give our restless mind a break. While a car can take you kilometres an hour to a physical destination, your feet can take you much closer to your home at heart.

Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry refers to the universal mathematical and symbolic patterns that are found naturally in nature, in the planets, within our own being, and reproduced within all religious arts. The action of drawing these patterns reconnects us with the primordial universal order, thus enabling a harmonious interdependence within one’s being and with the Universe. The action of colouring these patterns increases the joy and flow of creativity.

Pilgrimage to Bhutan in April

Dear Friends,

Everyone knows the Kingdom of Bhutan.  Being Bhutanese myself, it is my deep desire to share this jewel with members of the Sangha.

This is why I have decided to bring those who so desire on a trip with me there from April 19, 2014 to May 6, 2014.

Gyalwa Dokhampa, more popularly known as ‘Khamtrul Rinpoche’, was born in 1981, into the family of His Holiness, the present Gyalwang Drukpa and spiritual head of the Drukpa Lineage. He was recognised by both His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa as the ninth incarnation of the Gyalwa Dokhampa.

He went on to study at Druk Thupten Sangag Choeling Monastery in Darjeeling in India, where he spent his childhood and teenage years under the guidance of his principal teacher, His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa. Later he completed a nine-year course to attain his Master’s degree in Buddhist Philosophy from Tango Monastic University in the Royal Kingdom of Bhutan.
