- Welcome to Our New Resident Teacher: Geshe Tenzin Namdak

Jamyang 40th anniversary weekend - 5th & 6th October


- The Elephant's Secret Kitchen – Book Launch 6th October



Welcome to Our New Resident Teacher: Geshe Tenzin Namdak


The trustees of Jamyang London are delighted to announce that Lama Zopa Rinpoche has appointed Geshe Tenzin Namdak to be our next Resident Teacher.

Geshe Namdak is the first Westerner ever to complete the full, formal, twenty-year course of studies at one of the “three seats” – Ganden, Sera and Drepung monasteries – and to sit for the final geshe examination there. We feel extraordinary fortunate that Jamyang has the opportunity to host a teacher and scholar who combines such a high level of dharma study and commitment with a Western scientific education, in addition to his fluency in English. 

Geshe Namdak has very kindly agreed to take up residence in The Old Courthouse from June 2019 for approximately six months each year.
This will enable him to fulfil Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s advice to spend the other half of the year in retreat.
