New Rigpe Dorje Shrineroom Inauguration

On the 1st of April 2013, Kagyu Samye Dzong London inaugurated its newest shrineroom. After 3 years of hardwork and following a major transformation the old lending library hall is now our new Rigpe Dorje shrineroom. The entire room has been decorated in Tibetan style under the guidance of Lama Rigzin who is a master Thangka painter. With a team of many hardworking volunteers the room took 8 months to paint. The final stages of the transformation invovled preparing the 1008 Buddhas which are now housed in the magnificent shrine cabinet that spans the width of the hall.

Below is a video documenting the inauguration itself as well as a time lapse of the final stages of the work.
