My book has arrived!

My book has arrived!

My dear friends!
My book just arrived. I am holding my book in my hands and would like to express my wish that it may contribute to give people a fresh and positive impulse in their lives. The wisdom of the Tibetan culture can help us all regardless of our origin or religious background to understand our mind and overcome negative emotions, which is the base for peace in this world. Peace can not be forced by weapons. Peace can also not be bought. True peace begins with each one of us recognizing and understanding  who we really are. That's why I am convinced, that this beautiful Philosophy of my culture hold an enormous peace promoting potential for the modern world of the 21st century. The book might be translated soon into English and I will be happy to let you know as soon as this happens.
With my sincere love! Dechen

Coming Soon..

Dear friends
I am happy and proud to be part of the new BEYOND project again - with Tina Tuner, Regula Curti and Sawani ..., three wonderful, powerful voices.
It will be called `BEYOND LOVE WITHIN` - and is dedicated to the Divine Mother, the goddesses and Saints like Tara, Mary and Paravati, to the female power within all of us. 
I have been able to contribute with some beautiful buddhist prayers that praise the qualities of Arya Tara, the Swift Liberator.  I received them from my dear father Dagsay Rinpoche.
I hope the power of this music, the lyrics and our voices will touch you as they touched us when singing it for this new album which will be released end of may.

Meeting Sogyal Rinpoche in Zürich

Meeting Sogyal Rinpoche in Zürich

Dear friends,

I had the big honour of meeting the great Buddhist Master and author of the book of "LIVING AND DYING" Sogyal Rinpoche during his teachings last week in Zurich. It was a beautiful meeting and Rinpoche encouraged me to travel all around the world to touch people's heart through the sound of the Tibetan Mantras. At the end of his teachings Rinpoche spontaneously asked me to sing a Mantra. It was a great pleasure for me to dedicate the OM MANI PEME HUM Mantra for him and to thank Rinpoche for his untiring efforts to help millions of people around the world in their most difficult phases of their lifes with his books and inspirations.

With my sincere wishes,
