During the first three months of 2017, Tenzin Ösel Hita, the recognized reincarnation of FPMT founder Lama Yeshe, toured European FPMT centers giving talks to hundreds of eager students.

The tour began on January 25 at Maitreya Instituut Amsterdam in the Netherlands with a talk entitled “Easy Ways to Lessen Egoism and Develop Compassion to Increase True Joy.” The next day, Ösel went to Maitreya Instituut Loenen to give an improvised talk to the community of students there.

After the Nethlands, Ösel continued on to the United Kingdom to visit Jamyang Buddhist Centre London and the Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom in the nation’s capital, and Land of Joy, a Buddhist retreat center in the north. Next, Ösel visited Aryatara Institut in Munich, Germany; Tong-nyi Nying-je Ling in Copenhagen, Denmark; Centre Kalachakra in Paris, France; Institut Vajra Yogini and Nalanda Monastery near Toulouse, France; and O.Sel.Ling Centro de Retiros in the Alpujarras of southern Spain.
