TNG-SWISS®

The Precious Sanctuary of the Supreme Path

Welcome to TNG Switzerland

TNG is a study and meditation group of Tibetan Buddhism established under the spiritual authority of H. H. Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley Dorje.

The TNG Switzerland Association is based in Icogne, Valais.

The energy of the Swiss Sangha is transmitted by our Venerable Lama Sangyay Tendzin, resident at the monastery THEG-CHOG NORBU LING located in France in the Upper Aude Valley, north of the Eastern Pyrenees. Lama Rinpoche guides us with his precious teachings. The activities we propose are always closely related to the Dharma.

Good discovery!

OVERVIEW

BUDDHISM

buddha01transparence323 400x653 1 copy

Perceived as a religion, a philosophy, or a way of life, Buddhism is a journey into the depth of our being. Mind-training is the anchor of such journey.

By making us discovering the hidden reality of our essential nature, meditation leads us to become aware of our interdependence with those around us.

Realising interdependence means releasing our dependence on constantly wanting to modify our experience of reality according to our conflicting emotions.

Meeting such a challenge is long-term work, of course, but possible!

The fruit of this work leads to awakening or, more simply said, the ability to fully manifest our true nature. It is indeed the heart of Buddhism.

THE KARMA KAMTSHANG LINEAGE

The Karma Kamtshang lineage is one of the four main lineages of the Kagyudpa School of Tibetan Buddhism. More specifically, it is the lineage initiated by Karmapa DüSum Khyenpa, one of the heart disciples of the Master Gampopa.

Je Gampopa was the holder of the Mahamudra teachings transmitted by the Indian Mahasiddha Tilopa as well as the Kadhampa teachings of the Glorious Pandit Atisha.

From the point of view of its origin, The Karma Kamtshang line is sometimes called "The Dhagpo Kagyud lineage”, in reference to 'Dhagpo', place of residence of Lord Gampopa. From the point of view of its continuity, it is called "The Golden Rosary" referring to the qualities of successive Masters to whom was entrusted the responsibility of 'holder' of the Precious Teachings of Vajradhara Buddha (esoteric aspect of Buddha Sakyamuni).

The lineage is currently entrusted to the 17th Karmapa, His Holiness Orgyen Trinley Dorje.
