Join us for a Film & Curry Night at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds
We will be serving a delicious vegan curry with dhal and rice from 5pm and screening the movie Milarepa in the gompa at 6pm.
‘Milarepa’ is the story of the man who would become Tibet’s greatest yogi and saint. In the dramatic setting of 11th century Tibet- a time of roaming sorcerers and yogis, according to Buddhist legend- a young Milarepa falls into a world of betrayal and hardships. The greed of others upturns his privileged life, dropping him into a void of despair, humiliation, pain and anger. He sets out to learn black magic- and exact revenge on his enemies- encountering magicians, demons, an enigmatic teacher and unexpected mystical power along the way. But it is in confronting the consequence of his quest for vengeance that he learns the most. Filmed on the breathtaking scenic Indo-Tibetan border, Milarepa glows with a unique visual and spiritual charge.
Please note the film has subtitles and is suitable for aged 12+. Seating is on cushions and chairs in the gompa.
Please book in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you will be coming and if you would like curry, dhal and rice (optional) so we cater for the right number of people.
The suggested donation for the curry, dhal and rice is £5 and all the proceeds go towards the ‘Building a Community’ campaign.
