Lam Rim (Wilts. & Glos.) Buddhists have been established in and around Corsham for 20 years offering free classes and teachings on how to meditate and take the practice into everyday life. We offer four classes a week in Corsham for meditation, discussion, puja and study, as well as regular visits and teachings from Geshe Lobsang Thinley.

Saturdays 5pm till 6:30pm
A shortened version of the Tara Puja is followed by Geshe-la’s teachings on the Lam Rim, based on the sutras that the Buddha taught.
Geshe-la (Lobsang Thinley) studied in the Gelukpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism (dating back to 14th Century). He gained a high degree as Doctor of Philosophy (Lharampa Geshe) at the Drepung Monastic University in South India. This tradition practices a specific, systematic path to enlightenment – freedom from suffering –a lofty goal. But the practices are presented here on Saturdays to ponder, digest and discuss how to use Tibetan 14th Century tools in a modern Western environment!
Geshe Thinley is known well for his contagious light-hearted cheerfulness.
