Jewel Ornament of Liberation (Part 3)
Lama Jampa returns to Manchester on 6 and 7 July 2019 to continue teaching this major text, The Jewel Ornament of Liberation, by Gampopa.
The Jewel Ornament 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 with a serious interest in Buddhism. Among the topics covered are impermanence, karma, suffering, loving kindness, compassion and the six perfections.
Gampopa (1074 -1153CE) was the principal student of the great yogin Milarepa, and is one of the most highly revered Tibetan Buddhist masters.
The teaching will be held on Saturday 6 July from 10.30am to 4.30pm and on Sunday 7 July from 10.30am to 1pm.
On Sunday afternoon from 2.30pm to 4.30pm Lama Jampa will give the initiation of Amitabha.
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.
A two-day ticket costs £50, and one day tickets are available for £25. There is no charge for under-18s. Concessions are available on the door at the event.
