Barom Kagyu Chodrak Drupju Chuling – Tibetan Buddhist Group

The Barom Kagyu Chodrak Drupju Chuling Tibetan Buddhist Group was founded by Venerable Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche in 2004 and registered as a not for profit incorporated association in March, 2005. Barom Kagyu Chodrak Drupju Chuling was established by Venerable Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche to bring a precious teaching and practice lineage to the west. Until this time, very few, authentic Barom Kagyu lineage holders have been able to come to western countries to teach and transmit the immeasurably beneficial practices of this lineage. Since coming to Australia, in 2002, in keeping with Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava’s pre-sentient vision that the Dharma would flourish in the west, Venerable Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche has worked toward establishing an authentic Barom Kagyu practice lineage in Australia.

Named by our spiritual director, His Holiness Chodrak Saljey Rinpoche, the goals of Barom Kagyu Chodrak Drupju Chuling are clearly reflected in the English translation – The Barom Kagyu Chodrak Centre for Charity and Peace. It is Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche’s vision that the teachings of the Barom Kagyu lineage will bring peace, compassion, wisdom and loving kindness to his students. He also works tirelessly to promote the welfare of the Tibetan people in Yushu, Kham, in the Tibetan Autonomous Region in China, which has been described as one of the most economically disadvantaged areas in Tibet. Venerable Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche’s charitable projects are raising funds for the Chodrak orphanage, the nuns of Dechencholing Chodrak Nunnery and funding for a free medical clinic.

Sydney Centre

Sydney now has a new and permanent Dharma centre, located at 50B Woods road, Sefton NSW 2162. The newly constructed Shrine displays statues of the great masters of Kagyupa lineage: top row starting from the left, Gampopa, Milarepa (the greatest yogi of Tibet), Telopa, Vajradhara Buddha, Naropa, Marpa (the translator), and in the middle from the left, Tara, Dharma Wangchug, Amitabha Buddha (main statue), Dusum Khyenpa (1st Karmapa) and one thousand-armed Chenrezig.

Marpa Lotsawa, a Tibetan farmer, made 3 perilous trips to India to learn Dharma from his guru Naropa. The first Tibetan Kagyupa master, he is credited with the transmission to Tibet from India of many Vajrayana and Mahamudra teachings.

Jetsun Milarepa, the greatest yogi of Tibet, despite having committed evil acts in his early years, attained enlightenment in one lifetime by practicing diligently and enduring much hardship, under his guru Marpa Lotsawa.

Gampopa, the most important disciple of Milarepa, blended the doctrines of the Kadampas with his own realizations of Mahamudra, so producing the basis of the Kagyupa tenets.

Dharma Wangchug, one of the 4 main disciples of Je Gampopa, founded the Barompa branch of the Kargyupa lineage. Dharma Wangchug received many important teachings and initiations directly from Je Gampopa and was renowned to excel in meditation.
