Meditation Matters – Original Buddhist Meditation Lessons through February and March, every Weds evening at 7:30pm

A free course of 8 meditation lessons will begin 1st Feb. Please come and bring as many others as possible. If you are definitely attending leave a note here or on our facebook group page to give us some idea of numbers. May your path be short, for the sake of all.

Many people are using meditation these days for relaxation and improved mental health and these are very beneficial effects but they are not the real reason behind meditation. Meditation as taught by the Buddhist masters goes far beyond short term therapy. Applied correctly it can unearth the natural wisdom that leads one to a happiness and an understanding that is way beyond our current view.

If you are interested then you should come along because our state of mind is the most important thing. It effects every single thing you do. It will be of the most value to attend all 8 sessions as they will increase in profoundness.

The talks will be held each Wednesday evening in Febuary & March 7.30 pm RISC. First Talk is Wednesday 1st February 2012 In Room 3.

Weds 1st February 2012 in Room 3 @ 7:30pm

Weds 8th February 2012 in Room 3 @ 7:30pm

Yours in Dharma


His Eminence Ratna Vajra Rinpoche – Visit to Sakya Ling Reading UK, August 2011

This summer, Sakya Ling Buddhist centre has the great pleasure of arranging an initiation programme by one of great Buddhist Masters. His Eminence Khon dung Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, has kindly agreed upon the request of Sakya Ling, to  give a teaching on Reverend Vajra Yogini (Naro khacho), and a long-life (longevity) initiation of Buddha Amitayus & Hayagriva.

An uncommon teaching on Vajra Yogini (Tbtn. Naro Khacho ma)

The practice of Vajrayogini is one of the fastest Vajrayana methods to reach Enlightenment in this lifetime. Amongst the many different Tantras and Teachings which were taught by Lord Buddha, Vajrayogini Practice is most beneficial in degenerate and difficult times.

Restriction:  Only those who have previously received Vajrayogini empowerment from a qualified Sakyapa Master can attend.

Day & date: @ 3:00 pm,  Tuesday 2nd August

Please email for further details about the location:

A long-life (longevity) initiation of Buddha Amitayus & Hayagriva (Tbtn. Tse-rTa-zung-del).

The combination blessing and initiation of Buddha Amitayus & Hayagriva is especially effective in enhancing ones lifespan against unfortunate karmic circumstances.

Venue: (Victoria Hall),  Reading Town Hall. RG1 1QH

  1. Hi there, I hope you are well. I am Tibetan who lives in the UK. My family lives in Tibet and my brother is ill so we are desperate to get some advise from HH Sakya Tenzin. I was wondering if you know how can I get in touch, any help would be most grateful.
    with many thanks,

  2. I would like to attend the weds eve meditation classes but am away for some of them …. is it possible to attend the ones I am able to or do I need to commit to the whole 8 sessions?

    I would also like to start getting my children more involved with buddhism …. is this something I could do at your centre? They are 8 and 10 years old.

    Many Thanks Rachel
