The Weekend of The Dorje Chang Thungma with Lama Zangmo 23-25 June 2023

On the early evening of 23th June 2023, Lama Zangmo arrived at our centre, she came all the way from the Kagyu Samye Dzong London to give us teachings on The Short Mahamudra Prayer -The Dorje Chang Thungma over the weekend.

Soon after Lama Zangmo arrived, she kindly granted a Q&A session with the Ngondro group in our tea room, it was a great opportunity for people to clarify any questions about their practice.

The Dorje Chang Thungma Day 1

The Dorje Chang Tungma is a short Mahamudra Prayer, it is chanted regularly in all the Kagyu centres and is full of relevance both for newcomers and more long term practitioners. The text shows us how to apply ourselves on the path. It uses the analogy of our body, saying renunciation is the feet of meditation, devotion is the head of meditation and non-distraction is the body of meditation.

On the first day of the teaching, we listened to many great stories of the Kagyu Lineage Masters and were shown the path of practice and the benefits that can be achieved.

The Dorje Chang Thungma Day 2

On the last day of the teaching, Lama Zangmo paid particular attention to the verses that deal with Renunciation, Devotion and Meditation.

Lama Zangmo used vivid metaphors such as the cup and the water jug when explaining devotion.

We also did sitting and walking meditation together.

At the end of the teachings, we requested a group photo before Lama la embarking on her journey back to London to memorise this wonderful weekend.

We'd like to thank Lama Zangmo for her great teachings, the participation of all the attendees, and the helpful volunteers.


We are excited to announce Lama Zangmo's next teaching at the centre:

21 Oct 2023 10am-4pm

For centuries Tibetans have used a series of fifty-nine slogans as a skillful method for training the mind and cultivating limitless compassion.

Using the text The Great Path of Awakening, which contains clear, precise instructions, Lama Zangmo will give instructions with emphasis on using the practice to meet ordinary life situations with intelligence and loving kindness.

This course is suitable for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
