Letter of Blessing From His Holiness, the 14th Kunzig Shamarpa
Ven. Shangpa Rinpoche has built the Kagyu Institute for Buddhist Studies in Kirtipur, Nepal. It is a perfect place for people from all over the world to study Buddhist philosophy of the Karma Kagyu tradition and train in meditation.
Shangpa Rinpoche has already constructed and established several monasteries and retreat centres in the Kingdom of Nepal. It is my sincere wish that many people may benefit from this unique opportunity.
With my best regards,
H.H. the Shamarpa
