Rigpa Centre, Berlin, 23 May 2009
In May 2009, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche returned to Berlin. During his visit, Rinpoche was touched by the sheer number of people who died there in 1945, and felt it is important to practise for all the spirits of the departed that must still be there. Apart from elaborate sur practices, Rinpoche offered to come back with lamas and monks to do the most elaborate kind of Vajrayana practice in Berlin, a drupchen, which was made possible by the generous support of Sogyal Rinpoche and the Rigpa sangha in the unique Berlin Rigpa Centre. One morning, before doing Gesar practices, Rinpoche said these few words.
