Welcome to the Lama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Community

 Visit the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives - photo by Merry ColonyLama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group is an open-hearted community that empowers people to discover and develop their inherent potential for compassion, wisdom and inner peace. Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We meet in Burlington, Hamilton, Toronto, and Kitchener/Waterloo.

Lama Yeshe Ling is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT'), which is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught by Founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe, and Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The FPMT creates opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings. Lama Zopa Rinpoche and the FPMT is dedicated to fulfilling the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, understanding this to be the quickest and most vast way of benefiting sentient beings.

Toronto Dharma Teaching with Geshe Samdup

Tuesday Jan 23

Practical Buddhism - How to Deal with Upsetting or Difficult Thoughts and Emotions

Date: Jan 23

Time: 7:00-9:00

Location: 560 Front Street West, Unit 1031

In January, Geshe Samdup will continue the series on how to deal with upsetting or difficult thoughts and emotions, every other Tuesday evening. In the past weeks Gesha-la has taught us meditation practices and given very practical advice on the current topic. His teachings have been very engaging and his stories are very relatable and sprinkled with humour. By Donation.

The next series Geshe Samdup will be teaching is Lojong mind training.

 Chittimani Tara Puja 

January 17th

Please note that to participate you are required to have received the Chittimani Tara Highest Tantra initiation

We will gather for the full Puja practice. Practicing together as a group is a wonderful way to rejuvenate and deepen your practice.

Date: Wednesday, January 17th


Tara - Dusk to Dawn

Come for as many sessions as you would like or stay till dawn!

Date: Saturday, January 27th

This is special all-night practice similar to the regular Tara puja, but with additional prostrations and circumambulations. Come for the whole night or just one session (aproxamately 2 hours). This joyful and invigorating practice helps avert negativity and suffering, and promotes inner peace and thereby family community and world peace - occasionally with surprising effectiveness. Tara, the mother of all the Buddhas, is a manifestation of enlightened activity. She is particularly helpful in emergencies and difficult situations. We offer this all-night practice for the benefit of our local environment and neighbours, as well as for universal peace.

Chenrezig - Compassion Buddha

Date: Tuesday, February 13

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Location: Reynolds Ave, Burlington

Join us Chenrezig meditation practice on compassion, inspired by the Dalai Lama and the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM. Initiation for this practice is not required.
