Lama Jampa to teach in Manchester

Lama Jampa Thaye will continue his teaching of The Jewel Ornament of Liberation in Manchester on 22 and 23 February 2020 .

Lama Jampa will give the fifth instalment of teaching of this major text at the Studio in Lever Street.

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 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 22 February from 10.30am to 4.30pm and on Sunday 23 February from 10.30am to 1pm.

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

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.
