Our beloved Teacher

His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche

(1930 – 2002) 

Chagdud Rinpoche was, and still is, a jewel of the Dharma and a precious source of transmission of the lineage, to the thousands of people whom he taught in North and South America, Asia, Australia and Europe. His mind was vast and clear and capable of showing spontaneous maternal compassion, wrath like a lightning bolt and whatever else was necessary to benefit sentient beings. 

Each one of you has accepted a certain level of individual commitment to your Dharma practice. Strengthen it. Each one of you has a connection with a Lama or with a more experienced student that leads the Sangha. Cultivate it. Each one of you remains, because of your fortunate karma and your brilliant choices, connected to the interdependent web of our Sangha. Hold your position as practitioners and support others.

 

CHAGDUD TULKU RINPOCHE, IN HIS LAST LETTER

GET TO KNOW CHAGDUD RINPOCHE’S STORY OF GOING TO THE WEST

About the aspiration of building a temple in Curitiba

Rinpoche founded, before his Parinirvana, more than 20 Buddhist centers in South America.

The Dorje Ling Temple

Lama Yeshe and Lama Rigdzin have been holding  Chagdud Gonpa Dordje Ling  in Curitiba for over 15 years. Because of the generosity of their activities, the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition of the Nyingma school – known as the ancient tradition school – has been maintained in Curitiba for the benefit of all beings. Among the practices done at  Chagdud Gonpa Dordje Ling, are the Red Tara practice of Apong Terton, which is held every Saturday morning, as well as practices of the Dudjom and Chokling lineages along with various others.

Our temple is located in a rented house downtown and all of the practices, meditations and teachings are realised in a  tent in the backyard, maintained for over 10 years by the  generosity and contributions of our members and sympathisers.

A temple project together with the wish to benefit all beings

More than 15 years after Chagdud Rinpoche’s Parinirvana,the temple project  has been approved – following an immense effort to buy the land, elaborate the project and approve the building while respecting all  urban and environmental regulations.

The Chagdud Gonpa Dordje Ling Temple will be built in Curitiba - PR, Brazil, in the traditional Tibetan architectural style.

 THE SITE OF THE FUTURE TEMPLE HAS BEEN BLESSED AND CONSECRATED BY MANY IMPORTANT TEACHERS OF OUR TRADITION, INCLUDING:

In his last visit to Curitiba, when asked by his students when he would return, Rinpoche answered:

I will return when you have built a Stupa and a Temple.
