Kagyu Ling, Manchester

Kagyu Ling, the first Buddhist centre to be founded in Manchester, was established in 1975 by Karma Thinley Rinpoche and Lama Jampa Thaye. The centre allows people to learn the systems of meditation and study of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Buddhism, whose spiritual head is the Karmapa Lama.

Through its connection with Karma Thinley Rinpoche and Lama Jampa Thaye , the centre has been visited by many of the most distinguished Tibetan masters of modern times. These masters have included His Holiness the 16th Karmapa,  His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Shamar Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Kalu Rinpoche.
