Important Updates | March 2018
It seems to be a time of great change at Jamyang. Most importantly, we are preparing for the departure of Geshe Tashi for his new challenge as Abott of Sera Mey Monastery in South India. That will inevitably bring great changes to Jamyang over the next few years.
In parallel with this we part company with Marcos Troia, our director for the last few months. We would like to thank Marcos for his hard work and we wish him well in the future. Bruno Lopez, our SPC will also be leaving.
We have decided to take a little time to think about the organisation of Jamyang before we try to appoint a new director. In the meantime, Jackie Yip has kindly agreed to take on the role of Centre Manager. I hope you will all make her feel most welcome. Mike Murray, well known to lots of you, will be filling in for the SPC, mostly from afar, until the organisation settles back down.
We are confident that with the support of our teachers, and the understanding of the Jamyang community, we will come through all these changes, retaining our character as a unique centre of peace and contemplation in the centre of London and as an open, tolerant centre of Buddhist study and practice within the wider FPMT family.
We know that some of you will have concerns about all the changes taking place. If you do, please come to a meeting at Jamyang at 6 pm this coming Wednesday 21st March and let us have your views.
