On Saturday, 27 March Sakya Dechen Ling hosted a day of teachings by Lama Jampa in West London. In the morning Lama Jampa gave a detailed explanation of the Praise of the 12 Deeds of the Buddha. Lama Jampa emphasised the importance of learning about the life story of the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni, as a means to understanding our own potential for achieving Buddhahood. In the afternoon, Lama Jampa gave the initiation of Shakyamuni Buddha from the Bari Gyatsa, the famed collection complied by Bari Lotsawa. Lama Jampa will travel to Los Angeles later this week to commence his teaching tour of the West Coast of the USA. Lama Jampa will visit a number of Bodhipath Centres and Sakya Samten Ling in Los Angeles. Please click here for further information.
