26 June: Birthday of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

Please see the schedule below for changes to our usual programme:

Wednesday JuneĀ  26th at 7.15pm – The Birthday of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
In honour of the birthday of His Holiness Karmapa, the supreme Head of the Kagyu Lineage, there will be a simple ceremony at Samye Dzong Edinburgh with an opportunity for those who wish to offer Kattas or flowers for His Holiness while chanting KARMAPA CHENNO. This will be followed by a short sitting meditation.
(The 5 Elements Qigong class will go ahead but finish 15 minutes early to allow for the above.)
(The Buddhist Study Group will not take place this Wednesday as Ian Tullis is away but will be back the following week.)

Thursday June 27th at 7pm – The Key to Happiness in the 21st Century – A Public Teaching by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche
We are greatly looking forward to the visit and teaching of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche. If you wish to attend and have not yet booked, please do so asap. Those of you who have booked in the last few days and have not yet received confirmation, don’t worry, you places are confirmed! However, our booking manager Gwen is currently sweltering in the 36% heat of Texas and is therefore a little slower than usual in allocating your ticket number. Patience y’all!
(There will be no GreenTara Puja this Thursday evening but we will resume as normal the following week.)
