Mangala Shri Bhuti Europe

The Mangala Shri Bhuti community in Europe

Mangala Shri Bhuti Europe is a growing community of around thirty-five formal students from ten different countries. We come together online and in-person  to study and practice together, as well as to support one another on our spiritual paths. We warmly welcome anyone with an interest in studying and practicing the Dharma.

Kongtrul Rinpoche’s vision for Europe

During Kongtrul Rinpoche’s teachings in 2015, he expressed his affinity with the land and people of the “Noble Land of Ireland,” and his wish that MSB Europe explore the possibility of setting up a European dharma center there. We are now in the process of manifesting this vision, putting down roots in the Irish soil for the Dzogchen Longchen Nyingtik lineage to flourish and become available for all those with a connection to it. Finding a suitable home for MSB Europe will take some time: the land has to be explored and walked, and fundraising has to happen. In the meantime, Tangtong Gyalpo, our transitional centre in Dublin, is our base for group practice and individual retreat.

Programs and ongoing activities

Kongtrul Rinpoche gives public teachings each year in Ireland and other locations in Europe. For details, see his teaching schedule and our registration site. You may also sign up for announcements about these programs and other MSB events in Europe, and follow our European Facebook page.

MSB Europe offers online and in-person study and practice opportunities for new and experienced students. Those interested in becoming familiar with Kongtrul Rinpoche’s teachings and the Dzogchen Longchen Nyingtik lineage can begin with the online learning program Awakening the Mind, Softening the Heart.

Students who have completed online learning courses 1 and 2 are invited to join our monthly online study group focusing on the Four Immeasurables, the foundation of our path. In 2017-18, we are studying Kongtrul Rinpoche’s book, The Intelligent Heart, and will subsequently move on to his new book, Training in Tenderness.
