Fire at Shangpa Karma Ling in France

We are shocked and saddened that the beautiful main building of Karma Ling in France has been destroyed by arson fire. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The shrine room, offices, kitchen and dining area were all destroyed.

Karma Ling is under the direction of Lama Denys Rinpoche, one of the main Western disciples of Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche. The building was originally an Carthusian monastery from the 12th century.
