Lama Jigme Rinpoche was born into the family of H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, as the brother of Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche. He received extensive teachings from the 16th Karmapa, who during his first visit to the West left him there as his representative. Since that time, Jigme Rinpoche has been guiding Karmapa’s seat in Europe, Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, in France. Besides his organizational skills, he is highly respected as a lama. Many have benefited from his profound knowledge, his understanding of Western lifestyles, and his practical wisdom, warmth and humor.

No religion is more important than human happiness
The main goal of Buddhist methods is to benefit others and oneself. If we act for the benefit of others, we are sure to enrich ourselves as well.
The more freedom from our emotions we have, the more rich and compassionate our mind is
We just have to remind ourselves that the source for any happiness is mind itself
