On 10 November, hosted by Sakya Dechen Ling, Lama Jampa taught the second part of Atisha's 'Jewel Rosary of a Bodhisattva', which he began teaching earlier this year. Atisha's teaching is a succinct and pithy guide to practising the Mahayana path in every aspect of life and Lama Jampa praised the text as a valuable set of instructions for approaching daily life and spiritual practice. In the afternoon, Lama Jampa bestowed the initiation of Saraswati. This initiation is from the Bodong lineage. One of the main female embodiments of wisdom, Saraswati is also associated with artistic accomplishments, in particular those of poetry.
Lama Jampa's next teaching will be in Manchester on the weekend of 29 to 30 November. Lama Jampa will teach the final part of 'The Lamp that Dispels Darkness’, Karma Thinley Rincpohe's detailed commentary on the Third Karmapa’s ‘Discriminating between Consciousness and Primordial Wisdom’.
