Meditation with His Holiness Karmapa, a message from Australia, and What’s On in March

As the saying goes, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”. March 2018 proved at least the first part true as the “Beast from the East” breathed snow blizzards over the UK. Meanwhile, Ani Rinchen Khandro who was in Australia speaking at a Buddhist Conference during the big freeze, sent the pictures below to warm us up until the spring lamb puts in an appearance.

Even more heart warming is the news that His Holiness Karmapa, who is currently in the USA, will be teaching live by Webcast once a month. We hope to screen the teachings in the Samye Dzong Shrine Room so that we can all benefit together. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available and in the meantime provide you with the link to His Holiness’s introductory teaching on meditation. Ah the wonders of modern technology in the service of Buddha Dharma!
