NEW EVENT: Abbott of Nalanda Monastery Weekend Teaching 5-7 July
Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds is an organisation devoted to the study and promotion of meditation and Buddhist principles throughout the North of England and elsewhere, whilst preserving the Buddhist Mahayana tradition through study and reflection. We are committed to creating harmony and helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion.
Our organisation is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet, we honour the work of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and are affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
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
