In the 1970s, the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje asked meditation master Gendun Rinpoche to settle in Europe and teach the Dharma. As a place for its main center, the 16th Karmapa chose a site in Dordogne, France, and gave it the name Dhagpo Kagyu Ling. On the initiative of Gendun Rinpoche the association Karma Kundrol Puntsok Ling was founded in Germany in 1995, which formed the foundation for the Dhagpo-Kagyu-Mandala Germany, whose spiritual head is now the 17. Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje. His representative in Europe is Jigme Rinpoche and the headquarter of the Dhagpo-Kagyu-Mandala in Germany is the Dharma Center Möhra.
On this website we present the teachers, the centers, groups and the activities of the mandala to you. The Dhagpo Kagyu Mandala is part of the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
