So fortunate were we, to receive the precious teachings of ‘The Seven Points of Mind Training’ given by Shamar Rinpoche in Manchester ten days before his passing. It was the first time I received teachings from Shamar Rinpoche, following an invitation by Lama Jampa Thaye. They were so profound and given lovingly with warmth and humour. I was so very sad to hear of the loss of such a great master but so glad to have been so fortunate to receive such a precious opportunity. We are doing the Amitabha puja every evening at Kagyu Ling and pray fervently for the swift rebirth of his nirmanakaya form to guide beings on the path to enlightenment. May we all receive the blessings of Amitabha.
