"Friends" of Jamyang are very important to us. They offer a regular financial donation to help support the Centre and this is particularly helpful because it is a known, regular donation so we can plan with that income when setting budgets, starting projects etc.

A Friend is someone who:

  • wishes to continue offering an oasis of peace in London

  • wants the Buddha's teachings to flourish in the heart of the city

  • values having a respected teacher in our midst

  • feels part of the Jamyang community

  • wants to demonstrate their commitment in a practical way


To become a Friend:

  • We suggest either our 'Silver' Friends subscription of £15 per month or 'Gold' Friends subscription of £16 - £25 (or more) per month

  • download and print out and fill in the Friends Scheme application form (PDF) and return the form to the office of Jamyang Buddhist Centre, The Old Courthouse, 43 Renfrew Rd, London SE11 4NA. We will then install a standing order

Gift Aid:
