Lama Tashi Lhamo, The Círculo Niguma Association


Lama Tashi Lhamo has studied with Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche since 1983, and  completed the traditional three-year retreat in 1987 at Kagyu Ling monastery in France under the guidance of Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche. She was given the title lama by Bokar Tulku Rinpoche and Khenpo Rinpoche. For many years she has centered her work on two areas: teaching and translation.

Zabsang Shedrup


Zabsang Shedrub Teachers Committee consists of seven teachers; Eric, Gary, Jade, Kevin, Rachel, Steve, and Wendy.  In 2006, we were all assigned a position to lead and teach Zabsang Shedrub students by Khenpo Rinpoche.

All of us are students of Khenpo Rinpoche. Three took refuge in 1998, and four, in 1999.  The links between us are very strong.  Even before we became Rinpoche’s students, we had long been acquainted with each other.


Following Khenpo Rinpoche’s intention, the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche has arranged the current curriculum of Zabsang Shedrub, which encompasses four series of study & practice.


4  Study and Practice Series:

1.    Introduction to Buddhism Series
2.    Hinayana Series
3.    Mahayana Series
4.    Vajrayana Series

Status of Classes:

Casa Garuda


Practice the dharma at a beautiful hilltop meditation center and be in Italy too? What could be better! Casa Garuda is located half-way between Rome and Florence in the Tuscan hills.

Jim Scott's life has, from its earliest years, been dedicated to the pursuit of the contemplative life, originally as a Christian monk at a Trappist monastery, then as a student of philosophy at St. John's College, and finally as a student and practitioner of the Kagyu lineage following Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche around the globe of this earth for some thirty years.

Ultimate, View, Meditation, Conduct, and Fruition

The view is original wisdom which is empty,
Meditation clear light, free of fixation,
Conduct continual flow without attachment,
Fruition is nakedness stripped of every stain.

This view, the original wisdom that is empty,
Risks getting lost in just being talk and no more.
If certainty which is in touch with what’s meant does not follow,
The words will not manage to free you of clinging to self,
And that’s why definitive certainty means so much.
