Latest Event Updates
We’re currently working on securing a venue for sangha meetings and practice in 2014, beginning January, and hope to have details of regular location and times to share with you all during the coming week. Planned are various pujas (such as that of White Tara – Refined Drop of Immortality sadhana), a Yangzab Ngondro practice group, and monthly Skype teachings with the Venerable Dorzin Dhondrup Rinpoche, during which there will be time for you to ask any questions you may have on the Dharma and your practice.
We look forward to welcoming the many new Dharma sisters and brothers* we met during His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche’s recent teachings.
Watch this space!
*Anyone who requested that their contact details be added to the mailing list will be informed of our new schedule of regular events via email.

Tashi Delek and welcome to the official website for Gar Trinley Yongkhyab Ling, the first Vajrayana Buddhist group to follow the teachings and practices of the Tibetan Drikung Kagyu lineage in the UK.
Under the spiritual direction and enlightened guidance of both His Eminence Garchen Triptrul Rinpoche and the Venerable Dorzin Dhondrup Rinpoche we seek to provide a space in which students of all levels can come together to receive authentic Drikung Kagyu teachings, as well as walk together the path of love and compassion set forth by Garchen Rinpoche.
Fresh from the first and highly successful teachings to be hosted by the Gar Trinley Yongkhyab Ling group, two weekends of instruction and practice with the Venerable Dorzin Dhondrup Rinpoche held in Edinburgh, Scotland, these are exciting times for us! Plans for the establishment of a regular practice centre are already underway and talk of future Dharma events are in full swing!
