How Friends Help
Our circle of Friends of Jamyang is critical to supporting the community. It enables us to provide incredible Buddhist and universal education programmes and social services in a way that is accessible to all.
In these pandemic times, the centre has seen its activities from income-generating activities like venue hire or the Lotus Guest House dramatically impacted. At times like these, the support from our Circle of Friends has been invaluable.
Jamyang is... more special than we can imagine.
In my experience these are the most reliable and complete teachings I’ve ever come across for bringing more peace and happiness into my life and the lives of the people around me. Even more so because of the extraordinary qualities of teachers.
Jamyang is.. an important resource: personal, social, academic, energetic and physical as well as spiritual, for a wide range of people and needs.
Having a centre like Jamyang in London means the Buddha's Mahayan's teachings are available for all who make the connection and that people can find an oasis of peace and inspiration in the midst of the city. It means that people can find authentic teachers of the Buddhist path and a supportive lay and ordained sangha.
Jamyang is... a gift for the world.
At Jamyang you can find people that were pioneers in bringing Dharma to Europe, experienced meditators and retreat leaders, scholars and authors of best-selling Buddhist books (and that is not including the teachers). And, alongside the rich tradition, you also have a very fresh and contemporary approach to Buddhism that is suited to an urban city like London.
Jamyang is ... so important in these times.
It so necessary to have a place of kindness, holding a view in accordance with the reality of our condition especially in current circumstances.
[…] The centre, its role in bringing Dharma to the west and its relevance to the local community are so important in these times and will continue to be so.
