Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, the seat of HH Karmapa in Europe, recently hosted three days of teaching by Lama Jampa Thaye. From August 9 to 11 Lama Jampa gave teachings on the Three Vows culminating in an explanation of Sakya Pandita's "The Root Downfalls of Vajrayana". Among those attending the teaching were many lamas and drub-las from Kundreul Ling, the retreat centre originally established by Gendun Rinpoche. This was the fourth occasion that Lama Jampa had taught in Dhagpo, which, like Sakya Changlochen Ling, is located in the beautiful Vezere valley, site of the earliest human culture in Europe. At the end of his teaching Lama Jampa spoke of his strong sense of the preciousness of Dhagpo and its sangha and urged them, in the light of the recent passing of Shamar Rinpoche, to do their best to safeguard this tre asure of the Kagyyu tradition.
