Hevajra bg hblauNairatmyia


H.H.Drikung Kyabgon Thinley Lhundup

The Hevajra / Nairatmya Project in the Marpa Ngok Tradition

His Holiness has officially announced that the Milarepa Retreat Center in Germany is the place where the Hevajra Tradition will be revived and the teachings on the Mar-Ngok-Hevajra-Tantra will be a most prominent project. Thus he has set up a program according to which – starting 2021 - every year there will be a Hevajra- and Nairatmya- Drubchen from the Hevajra -Mandala. In 2020 there will be no Hevajra Drubchen. His Holiness wants to complete the teachings on the most profound Hevajra Root Text, the basis of our practice in the years to come. Every day His Holiness will also guide a short Hevajra practice Marpa travelled three times to India to receive empowerments and teachings and to practice there. A great many of Marpa`s transmissions go directly back to Naropa. Hevajra from the 13th Mother Tantra was Marpas`s main Yidam. It is the wish and vision of His Holiness to reestablish the importance and position of Marpa in the Kagyu tradition. Furthermore he wants to revive the transmission given by Marpa to his disciple Ngog Chöku Dorje – especially the Hevajra Mandala with 9 deities and the Nairatmyia Mandala with 15 deities. This was in danger to get lost and extinct and shall now be preserved for future generations.

Message from H.E.Garchen Rinpoche on October 10, 2020



It doesn’t matter whether one calls oneself a Buddhist or not a Buddhist. The Dharma is love.

When you see how your love touches others, it will become your happiness to give your happiness away.

Love is the only cause of happiness. Its nature is all-pervasive like space.

Love is the sunlight of the mind.
