Welcome to the TTC-Hamburg

The TTC-Hamburg is a study and meditation center of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje. It belongs the  Karma Kagyü lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. We are a member of the Karma Kagyu Association Germany, whose main center is the Kamalashila-Institute in the Eifel Mountains. The association includes the Retreat Center Halscheid (south of Cologne) and associate centers in Bremen, Berlin, Heidelberg, Frankfurt/Main, Ganderkesee (near Bremen) and Telgte (near Münster).

Everyone interested can seize the opportunity to pratice and study the philosophy and meditation methods of Tibetan buddhism in a community setting.

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche and Ringu Tulku Rinpoche are the spiritual directors of the TTC- Center in Hamburg. Regular weekly activities and weekend courses of study and meditation are offered here by qualified and authentic Buddhist teachers. His Holiness the Karmapa also sent a new resident Lama, Acharya Lama Drime Dawa to support the students’ spiritual paths.

On this website we would like to present an overview of our center's activities as well as our course schedule and further information about Tibetan Buddhism in general. We also appologize that many sections are not translated yet. But if you have any questions on TTC, please get in touch with us, and we would be happy to provide information in English.
