    Course donations in 2015 - a letter from Lama Zangmo

    You may already be aware that Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, the Abbot of Kagyu Samye Ling, made a decision this year in honour of Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche to offer the Dharma courses in Samye Ling without any course fees.

    Here in Kagyu Samye Dzong London we would like to follow this example, and so from January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses will be offered without a suggested course fee. Courses by external organisations who hire our venue, as well as non-Dharma courses, will continue to have a course fee.....
