Samye College Founding Members
Until recently we were all familiar with the temporary display near the entrance to the dining room which showed progress towards the completion of the Samye Project.Â
Thanks to the kindness and hard work of so many friends of Samye Ling, the Samye College now provides the resources for study and spiritual development so needed in our material age.Â
The Samye College Founding Members project began in 2010 and is dedicated to the late Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche with heartfelt wishes for his swift return.
On 26th June 2015 in Samye Ling, Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche led celebrations to mark the 30th birthday of His Holiness 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.Â
Following prayers in the main temple, Lama Rinpoche unveiled the long awaited commemorative plaque to acknowledge over 200 Founding Members.Â
Many donations were made in honour of teachers, in memory of dear friends, family members and with the aspiration that all beings be free from suffering.Â
The generosity of the Samye College Founding Members has helped to complete Samye College, the final stage of the magnificent Samye Project which was started by Akong Tulku Rinpoche in 1978 with the blessing of His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa.
