We are now able to give you the much anticipated dates of the annual visit of our precious Abbot, Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche. For health reasons he was not able to come last year, so it is very good news that he is getting better and is able to travel.

The programme for his visit will be varied and will include teachings on meditation topics (still to be decided) as well as teachings on the meaning of taking refuge.  During this visit he will give a Refuge Ceremony for those wishing to officially become Buddhists, and there will be an opportunity for parents to bring their children of any age along for a Children's Blessing.
 
Due to Lama Yeshe Rinpoche's illness last year he spent some time in Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary, where he was helped greatly by all the doctors and nurses. 
He subsequently decided to raise funds for the hospital as a way to thank them for all their kindness. We will therefore also be having a fundraising auction during his visit, as well as an ongoing raffle. All funds raised will go to the Dumfries hospital.
 
You will hear more about that in future mailings, but for now we would just like to ask for anybody who would be happy to help us sell raffle tickets to please get in touch.  The main prize is a brand new Rose Gold MacBook Air (worth about £1000), so the raffle  tickets can be sold widely to your work colleagues, in schools, to family members, neighbours and friends. If you would like to help selling the tickets please contact us, the more people the better.
