Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche
Thank you to everyone for all your kind wishes and prayers.
For those of you able to join us in Samye Dzong London in prayers for our Founder and precious teacher Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche, we are doing Milarepa Guru Yoga every evening between Wednesday and Sunday at 7pm. On Sundays we will do a Tsok Puja.Words cannot express the tragic loss of such a great being, but through prayer we can express our gratitude and appreciation for everything we have received and all the time we have spent in his presence.
Everybody is welcome to join.
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Orgyen Drodul Trinley Dorje, is the supreme head of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

November Newsletter Dedicated to Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche
At the time of writing this it seems difficult to believe that it's only just over 3 weeks since Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche died so suddenly and unexpectedly.

Guru Rinpoche Drubcho
Join the KSDL sangha for five days of intensive practice, between Wednesday the 13th and Sunday the 17th of November, on Guru Rinpoche to overcome external and environmental obstacles and inner mental obstacles.
Guru Rinpoche is the guiding power which emanates from pure mind, anywhere in time and space: the universal teacher. The dialogue between disciple and guru is really the age-old interplay of illusion and truth, darkness and light, the relative and the ultimate. Guru Rinpoche is the archetypal perfect teacher: a role model.
