The Venerable Khenpo Thupten Nyima’s visit – Autumn 2013 

 

 

 

 

Sakha Thubten Ling awarded over £1000 from the Co-Op!

We are proud to announce our successful application for a grant from the Co-operative Community Investment Foundation.

After careful consideration from the Co-Op, we were finally accepted as having fulfilled all the criteria requested including:

- Carrying out positive work in the community

- Organising projects which address community issues

- Providing good long-term benefits to the community

- Supporting co-operative values and principles

- Being innovative in our approach.

 

 

The deciding factor for them was that the funds would support more than just the local Buddhist community but enable us to serve the wider community as well.

The cheque was presented to us before our Wednesday meditation session on 23rd May and the Co-Op team; Lynne, Michael and Catherine stayed to join the session, which they thoroughly enjoyed as it was a new experience for all of them.

Well done to those involved in securing such a valued token and our heartfelt thanks go out to the Co-Op team, I’m sure you’ll all agree.

at The Sakya Thubten Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre.

We are pleased to be able to offer an opportunity for practicing Buddhists (who have taken refuge) to come together to pursue the essence of the Mahayana path, which is to develop and cultivate love and compassion for all sentient beings. The practice will utilise the instructions originally compiled by our founding Lama, The Venerable Lama Jamyang Lekshey in June 2002.
