Lama Zopa Rinpoche arrived in the United Kingdom earlier this week from Italy. First off, Rinpoche visited and blessed the proposed site for Land of Joy, a retreat center being planned for England. The property, called Greenhaugh Hall, is in northern England. Before finalizing the purchase, surveys and planning permission still need to be completed. During the site visit, Rinpoche and Sangha performed prayers and a puja. 

Rinpoche gives a teaching “Making Life Meaningful: Teachings on Stages of the Path” in Leeds on July 5-6, organized by Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds.

Rinpoche then travels to London, where he will give a teaching “Enlightened Courage – The Buddha’s Path of Wise Compassion” on July 10. Rinpoche will give Heruka Five Deities initiation July 11-13. And on July 16, a long life puja will be offered to Rinpoche. The London events are organized by Jamyang Buddhist Centre London.
