Lama Jampa Thaye, our main teacher, who has a wealth of spiritual knowledge as well as meditative realisation, has written a number of books about Buddhism.
Anyone interested in learning about the Buddhist spiritual path will find Lama Jampa’s books accessible and very readable.
Buddhism and meditation
Lama Jampa’s books cover a wide range of topics, from the basic ideas in Buddhism covered in ‘Leap like a Tiger’ and ‘Tasting Birth and Death,’ to the fascinating life stories of the great masters of the Kagyu tradition in ‘A Garland of Gold.’
For those interested in meditation, ‘Discovering the causes of Happiness’ contains practical instructions on the calm-abiding meditation practised at Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre, Manchester, Kagyu Buddhism north west groups and Dechen centres.
Lama Jampa’s most recent books include ‘Diamond Sky,’ a practical account of the Buddhist path, and ‘Wisdom in Exile,’ which examines Buddhism in contemporary culture.
