Due to the current Covid-19 lockdown, there will be no in person classes, pujas or sutra recitation until further notice.
Please stay safe and we hope that we can resume in person activities very soon. In the meantime we hope you can join us online for our virtual Zoom sutra recitation sessions on Sundays and pujas as per the Tibetan calendar.

Lam Rim | Understanding and Practising the Buddhist Path
Ven Dekyi will commence a new online 10-week study course on 18th August, on Wednesday 10am - 11:30am.
The course is based on the Lamrim, (or Graduated Path) which presents all of the Buddha’s sutra teachings, from start to finish, in a structured way. It clearly shows how all of the teachings fit together and are intended as personal instruction for one's own spiritual development.

Tara Statue Update
Yellow Tara is complete and is now safely located where the Tibetan painter lives in Sefton. Helen drove down to meet with Thubten Gyatso and Michelle and took some photos of Tara to share with the community.
The life tree is complete as are all the mantras to go inside. We just now really need to work towards finding a more permanent home for Tara, so that she can be filled and consecrated. Tara is not built to be moved around. So she can only fully be erected once KYRC finds a more permanent place. May the conditions come to fruition quickly! Thank you master painter Thupten Gyatso and Geshe Tsundu 🙏❤️
