Jamyang Buddhist and Meditation Centre Leeds

Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds was founded in 1996 under the spiritual direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. As a non-residential centre run by volunteers and two paid staff, our aim is to provide a peaceful place for meditation and a community of support for the study and practice of Buddhism.  We honour the work of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and are affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) which is part of the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Be wise. Treat yourself, your mind, sympathetically, with loving kindness. If you are gentle with yourself, you will become gentle with others.

Lama Thubten Yeshe

Your up and down emotions are like clouds in the sky; beyond them, the real, basic human nature is clear and pure.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche
