Charity information

Jamyang Buddhist Centre

Jamyang is the Tibetan name for the Bodhisattva of Wisdom (see the image on the right), and the name of our meditation and study centre in the centre of London.

Jamyang Buddhist Centre is affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international non-profit organisation set up in 1975 by Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-84), a Tibetan Buddhist monk. The FPMT is based on the Gelugpa Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet and consists of over 147 centres, projects and publishing houses around the world. Currently, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche is the Spiritual Director of both the FPMT worldwide and Jamyang, and we regularly enjoy his visits.

Jamyang became a registered charity in 1982 and welcomes everyone of any faith or none.

The centre has also hosted a range of visits from prominent Tibetan teachers such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama
