Möhra Dhagpo Buddhist Center

Möhra Dhagpo Buddhist Center

The Dharma Center Möhra is a place for Buddhist studies and meditation at which the teachings of the Buddha are presented according to the Karma Kagyü tradition, one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Here individuals can obtain guidance on mind training through study, contemplation and meditation.

The spiritual head of the Dharma Center Möhra is the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje. His representative in Europe is Lama Jigme Rinpoche. The center is guided by Dharma teachers of the Dhagpo-Kagyü Mandala who obtained their training in France under the direction of Lama Gendün Rinpoche. In the course of their training all of them have completed the traditional three-year retreat multiple times. In addition, highly qualified Tibetan rinpoches (masters) and khenpos (scholars) teach Buddhist meditation and philosophy at the Center.

The program of the Dharma Center Möhra extends all the way from the traditional teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni, through commentaries of enlightened masters, to courses in which the skillful handling of thoughts and feelings in daily life is directly addressed and practiced. The content of all courses follows the tradition of the Karma Kagyü school. The many-sided course program gives insight into the base, path and fruit of spiritual practice. On a daily basis, traditional Tibetan Buddhist meditations are performed in which anyone can participate. Weekend seminars offer the opportunity to become familiar with the structure and content of these pujas and to deepen their application. Supplementing this, workshops are taught on how to set up a shrine, how to produce tormas and how to play musical instruments. The daily practice of meditation serves to develop openness not only to all situations but also toward other sentient beings and one's own feelings. Through this practice we learn to fully accept what is. We learn to see everything we go through simply as an experience,without mental objection, rejection, or withdrawal.
