Event Details

Ven. Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche, Ven. Lama Namsai and Ven. Lama Tenzin from Barom Kagyu Sydney will conduct an anniversary ceremony for Gampopa (1079-1153), one of the great fathers of the Kagyu Lineage in Tibetan Buddhism.

Gampopa was the most famous disciple of Jetsun Milarepa, he consolidated the Kagyu tradition by integrating its special teachings with those of the other main trends of Buddhism.  Thus the Mahamudra, Six Yogas of Naropa and other Vajrayana teachings which are unique to the Kagyu lineage became firmly set within the monastic lineages that form the basis of Hinayana Buddhism and the bodhisattva teachings of Mahayana Buddhism.  The later came in the very complete and pure form in which they were taught to Gampopa through the Kadampa lineage.

Gampopa held both lineages of the Kadampa as well as the Mahamudra and Tantric traditions of Milarepa.  Since his time, the Kagyu tradition has contained both lineages together and has become rich in methods for leading disciples to realizations.  Gampopa led his own students first through the common Mahayana path of the Kadampa lineage teachings, and then through the uncommon Mahamudra and Tatra path of the Kagyu lineage instructions of Milarepa.

Barompa Darma Wangchuk who initiated the Barom Kagyu Lineage and the First Karmapa, Dusum Khyenpa, the heir of the Golden Rosary Lineage, were the most well-known and closest disciples of Gampopa.
