and bodhisattva vows.
Lama Yeshe is
organising a preparation course for this vow-taking ceremony at
Dhagpo Kundreul Ling from 8th to 11th August. Anyone who cannot

from Lama Yeshe on 11th August.
After his stay
in Dhagpo Kagyu Ling the Gyalwa Karmapa will return to Le Bost for

he is continuing his retreat and he is receiving daily teachings
