Nyima Tashi encompasses a refreshing and diverse approach to Buddhism for the twenty-first century, through the development of 3 objectives:

Firstly: To promote and foster interfaith/interdisciplinary awareness of the wide spectrum of Buddhist views and methods, as seen from the perspective of Tibetan, Mahayana, Zen, Theravada, and so forth; to foster dialogue through inviting individual and collective discourses of qualified teachers from all respective traditions, and instituting conferences, courses, and opportunities for ongoing discussion.

Secondly: To help promote genuine understanding of the benefits of Buddhist philosophy and practice in modern life, through the integration of an eclectic range of western research and commentary on such topics as psychology, philosophy, medicine, and other arts and sciences.

Thirdly: To advance and preserve the philosophy and practices of both Kagyu and Nyingma lineages; two of the oldest schools of Tibetan Buddhism, with a particular care given to the unfolding of the Kagyu tradition.

In order to bring about these objectives Nyima Tashi will move into a similar format to that of E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Due to the proximity of the two countries we may see more of this movement from overseas, as teachers that visit K.E.B.I. make the journey to Auckland.




Dear Friends and Members of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s Centres,

It is with deep regret that we inform the Karma Kagyu tradition, the Nyingma tradition and all other schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the wider Buddhist community that our treasured and beloved Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche passed into parinirvana at 12.10 am on 24th July 2012, being the Fourth Day of the Sixth Month of the Tibetan calendar in the Year of the Dragon.

Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was devoted to maintaining the Essence and purity of Buddhism. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was not only a remarkable and outstanding scholar of the teachings of Buddhism but his ability to communicate the teachings ensured that the essence of the teachings penetrated the hearts and minds of thousands of students of the Dharma throughout the world. We deeply and earnestly pray for the quick rebirth of Traleg Rinpoche.

We feel blessed beyond belief to be a part of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s activities throughout the West.

In these times when confusion and chaos are a part of daily activity, we are often too tense and charged up to enjoy life.

Kum Nye opens our senses and our hearts so that we feel satisfied and fulfilled and can appreciate more fully every aspect of our lives. Even in a short time, the quality of experience can be enriched and our lives can become more harmonious.

Kum Nye yoga is a gentle healing system, which relieves stress, transforms negative patterns, and helps us to be balanced and healthy. It increases our enjoyment and appreciation of life and heals both our bodies and minds, bringing their energies together to function smoothly and harmoniously.
Based on Tibetan teachings for living in harmony with physical and universal laws, this practice develops our ability to heal and energize our entire being. Kum Nye Yoga teaches us what it means to just be.

The moment practice begins, you are planting the seed of a healthy, positive attitude.

Intrinsic to the practice of Kum Nye is the decision to find satisfaction within yourself.

Nourish this positive attitude and it will grow, developing and increasing your sense of balance, happiness, and relaxation.

About Brian Berneman

A few years ago I started a journey that would completely change my life. I started my spiritual development as well as going out of my comfort zone by having new and different experiences.

And this journey that is still going made me grow, develop and change so much. I became a master on healing techniques like Reiki and Del Arca technique, and learned Traditional Thai Massage, singing bowl meditations and how to read Akashic records.

The decision to leave everything I knew and go to Ratna Ling, a Tibetan Buddhist Retreat Center in California came from a resolve to learn, change, grow and help with the endeavor that the organization is embarked in, and to continue in-depth learning of Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga.

Being at the Ratna Ling work/study program for two years gave me a lot of tools and skills I deeply cherish. Being immerse in the teachings of Tibetan Lama Tarthang Tulku every day, leading classes and helping to make Tibetan Sacred books to be given for free at the World Peace Ceremony to thousands of people gave me a different outlook of the world and its people.

Now I wish to continue my journey by traveling around the world and trying to help and heal people from different places.

I would love to be able to learn the differences of every culture and help them find a way to develop themselves with the tools that helped me and with new things I will learn along the way.

I want to let people know about all of the possibilities that are out there for them to grow, develop and change, and lead a more balanced and meaningful life.
