This one day course is open to everybody, but anyone who decides to attend must make the commitment to come to all sessions. 

The daily schedule will be arranged to fit in with Samye Ling residents' daily work schedule so they can participate. The course will take place in the main Temple and the usual daily prayer sessions will be shortened and re-scheduled to accommodate the teaching times. Guests who do not have Samye Ling work commitments are requested to help out with daily tasks so that more residents will have the time to receive the teachings.

Daily Programme:

Morning Teaching - 7.00am to 9.00am

Evening Teaching - 6.30pm to 8.30pm

There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome.  Donations may be made in the Reception Office.
