H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa –
varying inspirations and thoughts

Inner Wealth is within each and every one of you.
In my few years of travel around the world, and the people I have met, I can see that year by year there is a growing unrest due to a lack of Material Wealth. But I have also seen instances of happiness, joy in the face of material poverty, even when people cannot feed their own children.

How is this possible? Why are they still able to express contentment? When I ask myself this question ‘why?’, I can see that it is because of their spiritual practice or due to their cultivation of compassion and wisdom. In some ways, it becomes their hero, their saviour. I believe your Inner Wealth can become your hero too.

+ + + Möhra and Covid 19

The coronavirus Covid 19 is spreading and now the Wartburgkreis and the city of Eisenach have also defined decrees for events. First, all events larger than 100 persons were prohibited until April 19. In the meantime the city of Eisenach has already prohibited events larger than 50 persons.

The Möhra team discussed in a detailed team meeting which measures are to be applied in addition to the observance of the hygiene rules at the Dharma Centre Möhra.

Since we normally have guests from all parts of Germany, Austria and Switzerland visiting us at the Dharma Center Möhra and we ourselves cannot guarantee that we will stay healthy, we have decided with a heavy heart to do the following: the Dharma Center Möhra will now close from now until April 19th. Therefore, we unfortunately have to cancel all courses and retreats planned for this period and cannot receive any visitors. Of course we are following all current developments and will then possibly reassess the situation and inform you.

Karmapa Thaye Dorje said in his last message about the coronavirus that we all – without nervousness or panic – should take the necessary precautions and preventive measures and practice Chenresi.

We make wishes that all of us who are now confronted with a significantly changed everyday life will be able to cope with it well, find meaning in it and stay healthy. May we be able to experience and use the opportunities that lie in a phase of retreat.

We would like to draw your attention to a livestream of Karmapa Thaye Dorje: Sunday, 22nd March 2020, 10.30 CET (15.00 hrs in India), for more information please click HERE.

With best wishes for all our health!
We are looking forward to seeing you again already now.
