On Saturday, 4 January Lama Jampa gave the reading transmission for the whole of the preliminary practices of the Kagyu tradition according to the text by the 9th Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje. Lama Jampa also gave some explanation of the Ngondro practice according to the commentary ‘The Torch of Certainty’ by Jamgon Kongtrul. Lama Jampa explained that he himself received the lung from Karma Thinley Rinpoche 40 years ago and he also received it again, on another occasion from Kalu Rinpoche. Lama Jampa was happy that so many sangha were able to come and receive the lung for the Vajrayana preliminaries, which he said would strengthen the dharma.
Lama Jampa's next teaching will be in Bristol on 18 January where he will teach the Aspirational Prayer of Maitreya and bestow The Initiation of Maitreya.
