There are a variety of ways in which you can participate in the life of Samye Ling. The most helpful way at the present time is to become involved in Samye Project (see the artist's impression of the completed building project on the right).
Other ways of participating include visiting our centre for the day to spend time walking around the grounds, meditating in the temple, relaxing in our cafe over a cup of coffee and browsing in our shop. We are open all day long every day of the year.
You can also stay overnight in our guest house and attend one of our courses or retreats, or just simply relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
Samye Ling depends on its team of volunteers to run smoothly and efficiently and we are always happy to welcome enthusiastic newcomers. You can work as a volunteer on a daily basis, coming and going each day, or you can stay here as a visitor or resident, helping out with gardening, lighting lamps for world peace, chopping vegetables in our kitchen or building work.
To find out more about becoming a resident volunteer contact George Briggs at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also help us to distribute course information and literature about Samye Ling in the towns and places where you live. To arrange to do this please send an email to: email@example.com
