This is a drop-in course, there is no need to book in advance. Attend one session, some sessions or attend them all. It is okay to just turn up any Thursday evening.  

 NB: Doors will open at 6pm and close for the teaching at 6.30pm. Please kindly be on time. 

A Precious Garland by Gampopa succinctly outlines what we need to know at every stage of the path. The text gives precise instructions on what is needed to develop one's understanding, meditation and conduct on the spiritual path. It is suitable for anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of the Buddhist path.

On Thursday evenings Lama Zangmo will give a short explanation of some of the verses starting from the beginning, and will then give plenty of time for questions and discussion, and will end the session with a short meditation.

This course can be joined any time and attended as a drop-in class, it is not necessary to attend all the classes. Each session will consist of a short explanation followed by time for questions and opportunity to discuss the text in a group together with Lama Zangmo to gain a better understanding of the teachings. 

There will be the exceptional evening where there is no class due to Lama Zangmo having other commitments, but in that case there will be a meditation session instead.

The foremost disciple of Jetsun Milarepa, he truly consolidated the Kagyu tradition by integrating its' special teachings with those of the other main schools of Buddhism namely the Kadampa teachings prevalent during his time. 

Gampopa was the founder of the monastic order of the Kagyu School and he founded the Dhaklha Gampo Monastery, where, throughout his life he continued his activities of teaching, meditation, and benefiting beings.
