Lama Jampa in Mexico

IMG_0646 (1)After his visit to Los Angeles, Lama Jampa, together with Dechen Dolma, flew down to Mexico City, three hours away by air. It was his eighth visit to Saka Dolma Ling, Mexico's only Sakya Centre. Sakya Dolma Ling is located in the beautiful suburb of Coyoacan, where nearly five centuries ago the Spanish conquest of Mexico and its ancient culture was directed by Cortes.

Then Lama Jampa gave eight days of teaching. At the heart of the program was the teaching on Thokme Zangpo's Seven Points of Mind Training and the transmission of the Sakya system of Amitabha phowa.

Lama-la'a visit ended with a public lecture on "Buddhism in Modern Times"  at UNAM, the principal University of Mexico, and he left behind a sangha focused on new classes and preparing for next year's 10th anniversary celebration.
