About Lama Zangmo

Lama Zangmo first became a practising Buddhist when she arrived at Kagyu Samye Ling in 1977 and took refuge with His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje. She was inspired to enter the four-year closed retreat in 1984, during which time she became ordained as a Buddhist nun.

Lama Zangmo went on to complete a further two retreats, bringing the total number of years spent in retreat to eleven and a half. Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche then asked Lama Zangmo to put her experience to good use by helping to run Kagyu Samye Dzong London, which was officially opened in 1998. Since then the London Centre has flourished under Lama Zangmo’s guidance and established itself as a much needed Dharma Centre in the capital city, providing a full and varied programme of teachings and events throughout the year.

Lama Zangmo’s strong connection with Kagyu lineage and in particular with Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche has inspired her to work tirelessly and joyfully in service to the Dharma and helping others. In recognition of her long experience, selfless qualities and commitment, she became the first person in the UK to be honoured with the title of Lama by our organisation at a heart warming ceremony in Kagyu Samye Dzong London in June 2001.

The short Mahamudra Prayer - The Dorje Chang Tungma with Lama Zangmo

The Dorje Chang Tungma 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.

The course will look at the Kagyu Lineage Masters and show the path of practice and the benefits that can be achieved. Lama Zangmo will pay particular attention to the verses that deal with Renunciation, Devotion and Meditation.

There will be time for actual meditation as part of the sessions, as well as Q&A .

Date: Saturday, 24th of June - 10:00AM to 4PM / Sunday
