About this retreat
Jamyang Buddhist Centre London is currently midway through its current cycle of Basic Programme, an in-depth study programme on Buddhist philosophy and practice that has been designed by FPMT. Although registration for full enrolment has closed, we are opening up each subject to Observer students. Observers will be able to watch the teachings via a private YouTube link.
In addition to the course’s standard subject blocks, our Resident Teacher, Geshe Namdak will be leading an online Summer Lam Rim Retreat, giving students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the stages of the path to enlightenment. This retreat will also be open to Observer students.
Is this for me?
It will be assumed that participating students will have some familiarity with the Lam Rim literature and the corresponding topics, for example, by having completed the Discovering Buddhism course.
