Thank You for visiting the Sakya Ling Website. Sakya Ling is a Tibetan Buddhist centre which functions for the long term benefit of all beings. Meditation is a fundamental part of the Buddhist teachings because without it there is no way one can bring about lasting changes. The changes we need to make to find real happiness instead of the temporary pleasures we have at the moment.
Meditation allows a deeper understanding of things and the mind itself and this brings a natural happiness which is not contrived or premeditated, it is just meditated. Our normal way of thinking cannot do this.
A free course of 8 meditation lessons will begin 1st Feb. We would be pleased if you can join us and please forward to anyone you think might benefit. If you are able to attend please leave a note here or on our facebook group page to give us some idea of numbers.
