Learn about the Buddhist Path: new course at Kagyu Ling

Interested in Buddhism? Do you want to understand its essential teachings? Then come along to the new Buddhist Path course, which starts on 3 February at Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre, Manchester.

The course offers a detailed and comprehensive survey of the key points of Buddhism, and is based on the book ‘Diamond Sky’ by Lama Jampa Thaye, the renowned Buddhist scholar who is the founder and main teacher of Kagyu Ling.

The course runs in four parts of three sessions each in February, May, September and November 2018. People are welcome to attend all or part of the course, and there is no need to book – just come along. All the sessions are on Saturdays, from 11 am to 12 noon.

The Buddhist Path course is suitable for anyone with a serious interest in Buddhism, including those who have already made a formal commitment by taking refuge.  Each session will include a period of meditation.
