Hello! My name is Kamlo. I’m the Spiritual Programme Coordinator at Jamyang Buddhist Centre London. Thank you for being so patient while we worked to set up this forum. As well as working with the rest of the education team in organising Basic Programme, I am a student, learning alongside all of you. I feel really fortunate to have the opportunity to develop my Dharma practice under the skillful guidance of Geshe Namdak and with the support of this community.
Please feel free to use this thread to introduce yourself, perhaps by letting us know where you are in the world and sharing a few words about how you’re finding Basic Programme so far!February 21, 2021 at 8:27 am #16759Karol FrenchParticipant

Hello. I’m Diana.
I’m currently living in London and look forward to being able to visit the centre in person again.
In the meantime, I’m pleased we have online teachings and it’s great being able to meet others from all over the world.

Hello. My name is MaryEllen Kirkpatrick and I live in San Francisco, California. I’m SPC at Ocean of Compassion in Campbell, CA and I volunteer at Vajrapani Institute as well. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity for study with you all under Geshe Namdak. One of many wonderful things about having taken up this study is that I often see people I know from Jamyang in both the Ocean of Compassion and Vajrapani Virtual Gompas.February 23, 2021 at 11:02 pm #17047Kamlo Chen-DuffyParticipant
Greetings to all, from Wales, Germany, California and Denmark to Valencia, London and Rome! So great to see the global Sangha here. 🙂February 24, 2021 at 12:12 am #17049Anj BoxerParticipant
Andrew, from Australia here. I’m still trying to catch up on the last vids and readings and feeling a little behind. It’s been a rough end to the year as I was graduating so was trying to finish my assignments in on time.
I’ve been following Ven. Robina Courtin for ages. I wanted to dive a bit deeper/more officially into Buddism after doing the Lam Rim with her last year before COVID hit #funtimes. I should be starting a PhD exploring the similarities between the Lam Rim and western psychological interventions and how they deal with negative emotions this year. Hopefully, they’ll both complement each other (and I can catch up lol).
Anyway, if anyone wants to connect search ‘Anj Box’ on da FB.

Laura, in London.
Italian by birth, Scottish at heart.
Yes the BP and all other online classes held by Geshe-la and other excellent Teachers saved my bacon during lockdown. Thank you!
Yet, the suffering of change is now fully manifest and I am pretty tired of remote meetings – working from home is handy but it ain’t fun. So I look forward to being allowed to be physically at work, and in the Gompa, and in theatres.
Course I’m still grateful, but more grumpily so.
On a different note – I am doing the assessed version of BP. Are the Qs on the dashboard part of the assessment? If so, how do I submit them? And what are the deadlines?
If this is all perfectly explained in the dashboard, apologies- I can only take technology in small doses before my brain goes on strike..
thanks!February 25, 2021 at 4:50 pm #17142DAVID GRIFFINParticipant
I’m Dave from Lewes, Delaware. I hope over the next years we are in this course together to learn from Geshe and each other and discover why the karma of each of us brought us all together at this point in time. I hope we all benefit in order to benefit others.
Thanks Jamyang for making this available!
