Sakya Dechen Ling, Stuttgart has been honored by the visit of H.E. Ratna Vajra Rinpoche at the invitation of Lama Jampa Thaye. His Eminence arrived in the afternoon on Wednesday 28th May from Frankfurt and was welcomed by Lama Jampa Thaye. This was the second visit of His Eminence to Stuttgart after the first one in 2011. In the evening of the first day His Eminence gave a teaching about Mahayana practice, explaining the seven great aspects of the Mahayana. On the second day His Eminence bestowed the initiation of Chenrezik according to the King's Tradition, which was revealed as a terma connected with the Tibetan king, Songtsen Gampo. This was a rare opportunity to receive this precious initiation which is not often given. Also in attendance were Khenpo Pema from New York, Lama Gendün from Switzerland, Tsedor from the Phodrang in Deradun, India and His Eminence's attendant, Ngawang Tangay.
At the conclusion of the visit, the party left for Switzerland to continue His Eminence's teaching tour of Europe. Sakya Dechen Ling looks forward to His Eminence’s next visit in the not too distant future.
