30 September - 01 October 2023 (weekend)




Led by: Lama Rinchen

Seminar begins on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and ends on Sunday at about 4:30 p.m.

The Yearning Song of Remembering the Guru is a supplication that is related to the guru yoga of the Gyalwang Karmapa. One night when Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche was at the Benchen Dharma Center in Belgium, he had a dream in which he remembered his root guru the Karmapa repeatedly and, unable to bear it, shed many tears. He wrote this supplication with the devotion of seeing his guru as an actual buddha. The commentary on text was written by the Tenth Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche at the request of the retreatants of Benchen Retreat Center.

This particular song ans well as the commentary by Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche will be for the time disscused in Poland. This are very deep and exceptional teachings, meant especially for those, who feel strong bound with our Lamas and Benchen monastery.
