Update Regarding Amitabha Instuctions Course

Due to a lack of advance bookings for this course we have had to postpone it to a later date. Gelong Thubten has to travel from afar to teach and with few attendees on the course it would be ideal to schedule it for a time when many people can benefit.

Summer Pujas Update

During the months of *July* and *August* there will be no *Medicine Buddha* or *Guru Rinpoche Tsok* puja. This is due to the fact that most of the sangha will be in Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery in Scotland receving teachings from Drupon Rinpoche. Instead their will be *Chenrezik* puja. The normal puja schedule will resume from September.
