Manchester — Kagyu Ling

Manchester’s first Buddhist centre

Founded in Chorlton in 1975, Kagyu Ling was the first Buddhist centre in Manchester and one of the first Kagyu centres in the UK. For more information visit https://www.kagyubuddhism.org/

Established by Lama Jampa Thaye, with the support of his main teacher Karma Thinley Rinpoche, Kagyu Ling has, for more than 40 years, provided the space for people to learn, study and practise Buddhism.

It is now the north west base for the Kagyu Dechen Buddhist community and is a thriving, busy centre with a rich spiritual heritage which welcomes newcomers who want to find out more about Buddhism and meditation.

Kagyu masters

Kagyu Ling has hosted many great Tibetan masters, including the 16th and 17th Karmapas, Shamar Rinpoche, Karma Thinley Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

Alongside major teachings by Lama Jampa Thaye and other renowned teachers, the Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre also has a full programme of events, including introductory evenings, study groups, pujas (group meditations), group retreats and practice days.
