All Events

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

Friday 30 June (6.30-8pm), Saturday 1 July and Sunday 2 July (10-5pm)

with Paula Chichester (Nyingje)

Tara is known as the Mother of all the Buddhas as she provides protection, guidance and clarity. Green Tara takes us from the imagination of our wishes to their manifestation in the world.

In Buddhism, the foremost training is the actualisation of the vast mind of bodhicitta, the wish that all beings be free from suffering and harm. When we make bodhicitta the main emphasis of our lives, the rest of life flows naturally. Tara helps to facilitate this process.

Over the course of this weekend Paula will offer guided meditations on the practise of Green Tara, a light explanation of tantra and guidance on how the practice works. There will be group discussions and plenty of time for questions.

Tara practice energises and aligns the body, voice and mind to the heart-opening, sublime experience of feeling love for all beings and enthusiasm for virtue, bodhicitta. The aim of the weekend is to relax and enjoy yourself whilst making your life meaningful.

To book on this course please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk. Suggested donation £25 per day.

About the teacher:

As a young person Paula was deeply touched by the Vietnam war, the poverty of black america and the destruction of our planet by ignorant greed. After volunteering in politics, she realised that our values and mental habits are the true source of humanity’s ills. When she met Tibetan Buddhism and Lama Thubten Yeshe she found the antidote. For the past 40 years, Paula has dedicated her life to actualising the practices that transform greed and hatred into charity and love. She has been incredibly blessed to be able to learn from such great Tibetan Buddhist masters as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpohce, Thrangu Rinpoche, H.H. the Sakya Trizen, Sogyal Rinpoche…. and more…so, so many blessings…. and now she will do my best to share these with you!

Saturday 17 (Essential Form School) & Sunday 18 June (Essential Compass School)

10:00 – 16:30

Essential Form School Feng Shui is day one of a weekend course with internationally renowned Feng Shui expert and ‘good luck monk’ Venerable Jampa Ludrup.

On this workshop Jampa Ludrup will explains the most important points of the Form School of Feng Shui and provide information on the right way to choose and landscape your home and place of work and advice on the correct way to design and set up interiors.

Suitable for complete beginners and those with a sound understanding of this ancient art, Jampa Ludrup lays out the fundamentals of feng shui without any of the opaque mysticism that sometimes clouds the practice.

Day one of this weekend workshop can be taken on its own or as part of a weekend course covering Essentials of Compass School Feng Shui on day two.

Please note this course is limited to 15 participants.

Cost: £65 for either the Saturday or the Sunday or £100 for the full weekend.

To book email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk.

Jampa Ludrup is also available for private consultations to individuals and businesses between Monday 12 and Thursday 15 June. If you are interested in a private consultation please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk.

About Jampa Ludrup:

Jampa Ludrup is originally from Australia. He spent 18 years in the computer industry before becoming a Buddhist monk in the Tibetan tradition more than 20 years ago. At the advice of his Buddhist teacher, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, he became interested in the Chinese art of Feng Shui. While initially approaching it with scepticism, after years of study and practical application he saw positive results over and over again. During the past 20 years, Ven. Jampa has never failed to see improvements in his client’s fortunes, sometimes with spectacular results!

He has given many courses and consultations all over the world from Dubai to Monaco, the United States, UK and Singapore. He is also the author of Feng Shui – Seeing is Believing (Wisdom Publications).

For someone new to Feng Shui, Ven. Jampa explains, “Simple Feng Shui techniques can change your life dramatically. For example, everybody has four good directions for sleeping and four bad ones. These directions always work. That may seem like a sweeping statement to make but in the many hundreds of consultations I have done, over more than 18 years, I have never found one exception. Learning and using your directions is one of the most important things you can do for success in your life!”

Ven. Jampa also adds, “The very best way to avoid bad luck is to always perform good actions with the best possible intentions. This creates the seeds of good fortune.”

In our daily lives, we are often bombarded by external experiences that show cruelty and heartlessness. We are influenced by these situations and begin to believe that in order to be happy we need to follow a particular behaviour, obtain an array of material items and/or attain a certain status. Little by little, our kind heart becomes obscured by shields; the natural authentic dynamic flow of who we really are gets blocked and instead manifests as something more constrictive, negative, hostile or fearful. So we escape, blame or numb ourselves to what is really happening. Then the ruminating mind takes over deepening a false veil on our perceptions. This is the perfect time for practice opening our heart and mind!

How can we use our vulnerability to generate a strong wish to emerge from our confusion and separation and spark a deep experience of compassion for others? In this teaching, Ven. Amy Miller will walk us through a path of fully waking up and being present with our pain, fear, aversion and how moving through these less than comfortable mind states is the key to transformation.

Please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk to book on this course. Suggested donation for the day £25.

Prior to meeting the Dharma, Amy was a political fundraiser in Washington, DC and also worked for Mother Jones Magazine in San Francisco, California.

Amy also trained as an emotional support hospice counsellor during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco and offers courses and retreats on death and dying and end-of-life care.

From 1992-1995, Ven. Amy managed Tse Chen Ling Center in San Francisco, California. She then served as Director of Vajrapani Institute, also in California, from 1995-2004. From 1998-2002, she was the Manager of the Lawudo Retreat Fund (which supports the Tibetan Buddhist Center in which the sacred cave of Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche is located) in the Mt. Everest region of Nepal. In 2004 Ven. Amy completed a seven-month solitary retreat at Vajrapani Institute. For most of 2005 and 2006, she organized international teaching tours for and travelled with the esteemed Tibetan Buddhist master, Ven. Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche until Rinpoche’s death in 2006 and then became a touring teacher for the FPMT (the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition). From 2008-2014, Ven.

Geshe Tashi will continue to lead us through the arguments, logic and examples we require to understand the far-reaching advantages of having an understanding of the Buddhist concept of emptiness. Geshe Tashi is very aware of the importance of developing insights into the true nature of reality and by continuing to teach on the subject of emptiness, he is hoping to bring us closer to our own understanding of the subject.

Geshe Tashi will base his teaching on the Essence of True Eloquence by Lama Tsong Khapa, translated by Robert Thurman. (Full title of the book is Lama Tsong Khapa’s Speech of Gold in the Essence of True Eloquence: Reason and Enlightenment in the Central Philosophy of Tibet (Princeton Legacy Library) translator: Robert Thurman.) Geshe Tashi is well known for the warmth, humour and clarity of his explanations of Buddhist philosophy.

Please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk to confirm a place. Suggested donation £25 per day.

About the Teacher:

Born in 1958 Geshe Tashi fled his homeland with his parents at the onset of the Han Chinese Communist Party’s destruction of the ancient Buddhist culture of Tibet. His family were some the first refugee Tibetans settled in the uncultivated lands around Bylakuppe in Karnataka in South India. In the 1970s the refugee monks of Sera Mey monastery were finally able to re-establish their monastery in the South too and Geshe Tashi became the first young person to enter the monastery since 1959.

Geshe Tashi went through the complete monastic curriculum studying for a Geshe degree (equivalent to a Doctor of Divinity) which he finally gained with highest honours, gaining a first in the Geshe Lharampa degree. He then went on to the Gyu Toed Tantric monastery where he studied the major Gelug tantras for one year.

After that Geshe Tashi went to teach at the Nalanda Monastery near Toulouse in France. After a few years he kindly accepted the invitation to be the resident teacher at Jamyang Buddhist Centre London, where he has been for almost 20 years.

Geshe Tashi teaches directly in English and is well known for the warmth, humour and clarity of his teaching. He regularly teaches at Jamyang Leeds and leads our annual Ackworth Retreat, as well as teaching and leading retreats across Europe.

Without doubt Geshe Tashi’s greatest inspiration is His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his extraordinary life and work on behalf of the Tibetan people, Tibetan culture and Tibetan Buddhism. When His Holiness is in the UK and Europe Geshe Tashi has the good fortune to interpret for him.

‘The mind is devoid of mind, for the nature of the mind is clear light’ (From 8000 verse Prajnaparamita Sutra)

This is one of the most important Buddhist quotes one can find and is often used by HH Dalai Lama when presenting the whole Buddhist path.

Over the two days we will be looking at, studying and meditating on the essence of Buddhist practise, the mind. As is stated in many sutras and commentaries, the mind is the source of samsara and nirvana. There is really no more important subject to know intimately than the mind, both in theory and in practise!

Starting with the basic presentations of the mind and up to more complicated aspects, we will look at how the mind is the basis of the path, how the path is essentially a progression of the mind and how the mind is the result or fruit of the practise.

Using both reasoning and meditation practise we will examine the fundamental ground which is the mind, from the conventional to the ultimate nature.

Please email smile@jamyangleeds.co.uk to book on this weekend. Suggested donation £25 per day.

About the teacher:

Tenzin Josh has been a student of Buddhism since 1988 and was a Buddhist monk for 15 years. During this time he spent more than 12 years at one of HH Dalai Lama’s own monasteries in India studying the Geshe program.

He is fortunate enough to count many great Lamas as teachers, including HHDL, Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche, Dema Lochoe Rinpoche, Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lati Rinpoche.

He has a BA and an MA in Buddhist studies and has completed part of his work toward a PHD. Mainly trained in the Tibetan tradition, Tenzin Josh also practised and spent time at monasteries in Burma, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Laos. He has been teaching since 1992 and taught hundreds of retreats in many different countries across the world.

“If Friends are able to make the commitment of a regular donation it will enable the centre to meet the day-to-day running costs and to plan a sustainable future to ensure JBCL facilities will be available in Leeds for a long time to come.”

We are very happy that everyone who comes to Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds can use the Centre; can access authentic, quality teachings and can use our library facilities on the premises.

All Dharma teachings at JBCL are free of charge but we need donations to cover the running costs of our city centre venue. It currently costs JBCL £1000 every week to pay our rent and bills.

The contribution of volunteer time and the money donated during classes goes a long way towards maintaining JBCL but more is needed to cover the monthly running costs. In order to fulfil the centre’s aims it relies on dedicated long-term support and you could be part of this support by becoming a Friend.
