Spiritual Director: Kangyur Rinpoche/H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche  
Notes and Events:

Songtsen is a non-profit organization, dedicated to preserving and making accessible the culture and wisdom of Tibet and to helping communities in difficulty, particularly in the Himalayan region. It takes its inspiration from the extraordinary compassion of Kangyur Rinpoche, one of the greatest Tibetan lamas of the last century. Songtsen represents more than 30 years of aid projects and cultural activities initiated and followed through by a group of Tibetans and Westerners.

Most of the organization’s office structures, as well as its teaching and retreat facilities, are located on the Côte de Jor, a forested ridge with spectacular views over the Vézère valley. The Chanteloube, Siddhartha and KRF offices are located in a restored French house known as La Bicanderie. Nestled in a secluded hillside and surrounded by forest are the traditional retreat centres of Thekchok Osel Chöling and Thekchok Ngayap Chöling.

Notes and Events:

We are the Dharmahouse community project - a small community, drawing inspiration from the teachings of the Buddha and the ideal of living and connecting with others close to nature. It is our aim to explore a way of life centred around ecological and sustainable ethics, placing an emphasis on integrating mindful awareness into daily activities.

The Dharmahouse is based in the foothills of the Cévennes mountain range overlooking the Cèze River in the south of France, surrounded by national park and majestic views. The property is located on a hilltop in eight acres of farm land encompassing a variety of plants, herbs and trees, such as olive, almond, plum, mimosa, fig and apricot trees. The community is active in growing food in our gardens and structuring the land with permacultural ideas and designs.

The Dharmahouse takes its name from the Sanskrit term \'Dharma\' from a teaching laid down by the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, over 2,500 years ago. It is a revolutionary teaching that points to \'the truth of reality\'. We are a peer-led lay community encouraging spiritual friendship, what the Buddha referred to as ‘the whole of the spiritual life’. At various times throughout the year we hold meditation and yoga retreats, led by monastic and lay teachers. We also run courses exploring a wide range of topics, including ecological building, permaculture and therapeutic process.

Introducing the European Bodhicitta Society (EBS)
 
 The European Bodhicitta Society has been established under the guidance of Khenpo SoDargye from Serthar Buddhist Institute (Larung Gar) of Serthar district situated in the province of Sichuan. With the purpose of promoting the spirit of Mahayana Buddhism to benefit everyone in Europe, the European Bodhicitta Society was founded on the first of August in 2009. After two years of development, the number of members has increased from three to over 40 people living in different European countries.

The EBS promotes the Mahayana Buddhist teachings by integrating theories with practices. It plays a proactive role in advocating charity, such as environmental and animal conservation, popularising vegetarianism and in encouraging social cohesion and development.

Under the teachings of Buddha and the guidance of Khenpo SoDargye, the EBS, as well as all its members, strive to promote the theories and practices of Buddhism to everyone in Europe and to let everyone find true happiness.

Our study approaches

Based on Khenpo SoDargyes requirements, the European Bodhicitta Society has set up three study groups, namely: Preliminary practice of Great Perfection (Dzogchen) Study Group, Study Group B, which mainly study Shantidevas Bodhisattva way of life (Bodhicaryavatara) and a new class introduced in 2012. Beside this, each year, the European Bodhicitta Society will commence new study groups, these include the Preliminary practice of Great Perfection, Pure Land class, and Bodhicaryavatara study group. We also aim to initiate a study group focusing on Vajrayana practice such as Dzogchen, and other classes such as Madhyamika (Middleway) and Pramana (Buddhist Logic).

Our main study approach is by mean of online discussions, which takes place every week. In addition, occasionally, our UK Bodhicitta Socieity also holds some seminars physically. All our studies are managed by Serthar Buddhist Institute. Serthar Buddhist Institute provides learning materials, records our study performance and statistics, arranges lesson plans, organises exams and awards, evaluates the teaching achievements after the end of each semester and issues related certificates and prizes. Moreover, the European Bodhicitta Society is supervised by a specially appointed monastic from the Institute.

The reasons for creating the Bodhicitta Society

The European Bodhicitta Society was founded during the financial crisis. In the era of materialism and when our life highly depends on money, an economic downturn has been particularly detrimental to many people. This is also the proof that money cannot bring sustainable happiness and does not solve the spiritual emptiness within us. Money cannot help us in finding the true purpose of life but rather deviates us from doing so. Many people spend a large proportion of their time on things and activities, which become meaningless when facing the pain, anxiety and fear. That is why we believe that the way of Dharma is the only way to real happiness and fulfilment. In light of this need, Khenpo SoDargye has called for the establishment of Bodhicitta society of which the EBS is also part of it.
