Meditation Center Boddy Dharma, Drikung Kagyu Brazil

We are a Buddhist Meditation Center, affiliated to the Drikung Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The center was recently created by the Journalist Angela Oliveira Harkavy upon returning to Brazil after 30 years living in the United States. Angela became Ani Konchok Chime, when she was ordained a nun by the Drikung Kagyu, in Maryland, at the Drikung Tibetan Meditation Center in 2008, by S. Eminencia Kenchen Konchok Gyaltsen. Ani Chime met H. Holiness the Dalai Lama, in Washington D.C. In the same year she met H. Holiness Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Supreme Leader of the Drikung Kagyu during his first visit to the US.

Since then, Ani Konchok Chime studied Buddhism in depth with many teachers: H. Holiness the Dalai Lama, H. Holiness Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Your Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, Your Eminence Gyabra Rinpoche, Venerable Kenchen Gyaltsen Rinpoche, Venerable Traga Rinpoche, Drupon Thinley Ningpo , Venerable Lama Thutbten Nima (Gape Lama), Lama Gursan, Drupon Trinley Yeshi Rinpoche, Drupon Rinchen Dorje, Venerable Lama Konchok Sonam, Venerable Khenmo Drolma, Venerable Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzina and Venerable Khenpo Rinpoche, among others.

When she was preparing to move back to Brazil, Ani Chime received direct instruction from H. Holiness Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche to open a Meditation Center in Brazil to teach and spread compassion and the dharma.
