Coronavirus - a message from Lama Zangmo

Dear Friends,

As a spiritual community and a place of refuge we have a responsibility to do our best to protect the wellbeing and safety of our visiting guests, our teachers and our residential community. 

In light of the current coronavirus situation in London we fully understand the anxiety around travelling, attending teachings and being in close gatherings, and we have therefore made some changes to our course programme.

The Centre will still be open as usual with our weekly shinay meditation on Wednesdays & Fridays and Chenrezig puja on Saturdays & Sundays. We will continue to pray for those directly affected by this outbreak and you are welcome to join us.

However, in order to minimize the close traffic in the centre we will be cancelling our own courses  from 18th March onwards for the foreseeable future.

If you have any cold or flu like symptoms, or may have been in contact with someone who has Coronavirus, please, rather than risk infecting others, we request that you do not come to Samye Dzong London at this time.

If you have booked accommodation with us, please feel free to contact us for a refund.

We will keep you updated regarding our programme as time goes on.

With best wishes for your health and happiness

Lama Zangmo.
