Our Precious Lamas


The 17th Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje

was born in 1983 in Lhasa, Tibet in the family of Buddhist master from the school of Ningmapa, Miphana Rinpoche. He was found and discovered by Kunzing Shamara Rinpoche. At the age of 11 he was forced to leave Tibet due to the political situation and seek exile in India, where he lives in West Bengal, Kalimpong. J.S. the 17th Karmapa Thinley Thaye Dordje introduced himself to the Western population in 2000, when he carried out a very succesful tour of Europe. He passed on the Buddhist teaching to almost 30 000 people. Since 2003 he is a regular visitor to the Western countries, including Czech republic.


Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche

Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche is a highly acknowledged Lama of the Karma Kagyu lineage. His teaching style is easy to comprehend but deep at the same time. His explanations don’t lack humour, stories and practical advice. Several years ago, Rinpoche established two Buddhist monasteries and a centre for meditation in Pharping. Almost his entire life he has been taking care of orphans and children from poor families. He has published a range of texts and built many stupas in Nepal and Europe. As one of few Buddhist teachers, he holds the title Maniwa, which is given to masters of the Loving Eyes practice who inspired beings to recite at least one billion OM MANI PEME HUNG mantras. Together with the 17th Karmapa, he is a spiritual authority of NALA endowment fund and the new Karma Kungha Padkar Ling endowment fund.
