These four evenings will cover what is usually called the four thoughts that turn the mind to the dharma. Their function is to make us more aware of the importance of dharma practice. Through contemplating the topics, we come to develop an appreciation of our current situation and we are less likely to waste the opportunities that arise.

The four thoughts are appreciation of the precious human birth, recognition of death and impermanence, understanding of cause & effect and dissatisfaction with worldly existence.  

Lama Zangmo will give explanation of these four important topics, as well as an explanation of the meaning of taking refuge. There will be an opportunity to take refuge in a Refuge Ceremony with Choje Lama Yeshe Rinpoche during his visit to Samye Dzong London in early July.

This course will run over four Thursdays and it is a requirement to commit to attend all four classes. Unless you are able to attend all the classes, we ask you not to book for the course. Each class will have time for instructions, questions and answers, as well as time for meditation. 

Course donations

Since January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses have been offered without a suggested course fee. 

In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma. 

Please read Lama Zangmo's letter for further information.
