There are three categories of Buddhist practitioners, the ‘Yogis’ who have renounced worldly things and spend their lives in retreats and meditation practice, monks and nuns who observe the precepts and are full time practitioners of the Dharma and finally lay people who live in samsara taking care of families and friends. For lay people there are many challenges coping with both negative and positive experiences however we can practice Buddhism to subdue the negative or afflictive emotions by participating in and organising Dharma.
The Annual Drukpa Council aspires to create a forum for practitioners and those seeking the path by providing a space where all these different aspects converge, by inviting great masters of the Drukpa lineage, preparing and coordinating a programme that includes teachings and group practices, plus a great gathering of the sangha from far and near to inspire and support those seeking the path of Dharma.
This is now in the sixth year of the Annual Drukpa Council we would like to thank those who have supported us thus far. If anyone is interested, please visit www.drukpacouncil.org to find out how you can participate in and/or support this unique event.
