Jewel Ornament of Liberation (Part 2) – Lama Jampa teaches in Manchester

Jewel Ornament

Lama Jampa Thaye will continue teaching this important Buddhist text in Manchester on 23 and 24 February 2019.

The Jewel Ornament of Liberation by Gampopa is the key manual of study and practice in the Kagyu tradition.

It gives a complete explanation of the Buddhist path from its starting point to the achievement of enlightenment, and is relevant to anyone who has a serious interest in Buddhism.

Buddha nature, precious human life, impermanence, karma, suffering, loving kindness, compassion and the six perfections are among the topics covered in the Jewel Ornament of Liberation.

Gampopa (1074 – 1153CE) is one of the most highly respected Tibetan Buddhist masters, and was a student of Milarepa.

Lama Jampa taught Part 1 of the text in December 2018.


Saturday 10.30am – 4.30pm and Sunday 10.30am – 1.00pm.

On Sunday afternoon,  from 2.30pm to 4.30pm, Lama Jampa will give the initiation of Amitayus.

While anyone with a serious interest in Buddhism is welcome to attend the teaching, the initiation is open only to those who have taken refuge, i.e. made a formal commitment to Buddhism.

Venue: The Studio Lever Street, Manchester M1 1FN.
