50th Anniversary Event

Annual Tea Party

Card part A Temple 26

Card part B Message 37

It is 50 years since Samye Ling was first established in 1967 so this year the Tea Party will be extra special with entertainments, some (short) speeches and plenty of delicious refreshments.

We have worked hard to finish our building project as well as extensive landscaping and many improvements to existing buildings in time for all our guests to enjoy the stunning beauty of the completed Samye Project.  We invite you to join us in celebrating what has been achieved by the combined efforts of everyone who has been involved with Samye Ling over the last 50 years.

Anniversary celebrations will begin on a spiritual note with a Guru Rinpoche Drupcho in Samye Temple from 21st to 25th August.
