Become a Friend

Regular donations from Friends will enable Jamyang Leeds to meet the day-to-day running costs and to plan a sustainable future so that the centre can serve the people of Leeds for a long time to come.

We are very happy that everyone who comes to the centre can enjoy authentic, quality Buddhist teachings and meditation classes, as well as access to our meditation room, our shop, and our library.

We offer all our teachings and events free of charge. 

Our monthly expenses of £4,000 include offerings to our teachers and meditation leaders, rent, as well as administration and other costs. £3,400 of this is covered by donations, including £800 from our kind 42 Friends.

If we had 30 more Friends, paying an average of £20 every month, we would cover all our costs.

  • full use of the book, audio, and DVD lending libraries
