HOMAGE TO THE GURU

On 14 April 2014 at 11:04 our belowed Guru left his body, however we are constantly surprised by his relentless capacity to continue to transmit the pure Holy Dharma.

His journey was accompanied with prayers and practices performed at his home in Rikon, where his precious presence has been felt strongly day and night.  



In accordance with Tibetan tradition, many auspicious prayers and rituals were performed for our Guru for at Rikon, his centers and many different monasteries for  seven consecutive weeks. 

Khenchen Lama Sherab dedicated his whole being to the practice of Dharma and was awarded the highest level of recognition from the Sakya monastic university. In the 60', he was chosen by His Holiness Dalai Lama to offer support to the first Tibetan refugee settlement in exile in Switzerland. However, his mission did not end there; he founded various Dharma centres throughout Europe and shared his profound spiritual experience of great loving kindness and wisdom with his followers.

He was a role model Dharma practitioner, a living example of profound faith that transcends the impermanence of phenomenal world. He taught us that it is the role of the disciples to give rebirth to the Masters through our sincere devotion and practice in accordance with the instructions we have received.

He offered all he had and clearly showed us the Path to follow. If we follow his instructions, there is absolutely no doubt we shall reach the state, where the feeling of sorrow and separation from what we think we had lost vanishes completely.

He did not leave us behind; he only temporarily changed his teaching method. He is with us every time we perform a virtuous deed and we are putting into practice his teachings every time our face radiates with a smile filled with love, and we are getting more and more familiar with the Dharma every time we make the right decision.

A disciple in harmony with oneself is never alone.
