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.

Getting Relationships Right: Taking Heart with Compassion and Loving Kindness - with Venerable Amy Miller

Relationships are vital to our well being. The deepest and most reliable way to improve our relationships with others, and become happier and more content, is by improving our relationship with ourselves.

Tara - Dusk to Dawn - Mantrathon

A 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! This joyful and invigorating practice helps avert all froms of negativity and suffering, and promotes inner peace and therby family community and world peace - occasionaly 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 once a year especially for the benefit of our local environment and neighbours, as well as for universal peace.
This year we are dedicating this to the the Stephan Lewis Date campaign to raise funds for African grandmothers who are raising an entire generation of children who have lost both parents to AIDS.  Please consider joining the team or making a donation.
The puja is divided into 4 sessions, each with meditation, praises, offerings, prayers and circumambulating the holy objects and statues. We chant many different versions of the praises, recite the name mantras of each of the Tara's, as well as various lam-rim prayers.
We supply unlimited chai tea and coffee, and biscuits and snacks! Please feel free to bring a light dinner to share for the first session.
