Lama Oser - Gomde Lindholme Hall - The centre for Tibetan Buddhism in the UK

Lama Oser

Lama Oser is one of our very senior monks at the Ka-Nying Shedrup Ling monastery. He has studied under many great masters and for a number of years was the personal assistant of the great Dzogchen master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. We are therefore very fortunate that Lama Oser will reside here and lead retreats and offer formal teachings. Lama Oser will also support practitioners with all aspects of their practice andwill be avialable to support those who undertake retreat and semi-retreat at the Hall.   
 
We look forward to Lama´s visit in 2018. 
 
Lama Oser´s provisional teaching and retreat schedule for 2018

Hightlights of Lama´s schedule include:
 
Retreats
A week-long Green Tara Retreat  24 -30 August
The sadhana of the 4 Mandalas as practised in the outer Tara Tantra in the Tara Triple Excellence programme.
Following the traditional 4 session format Lama Oser will guide us through the practice and ritual and also provide instructions on the practice. We have asked Lama to teach this with the hope that any students of the Tara´s Triple Excellence online program who wish to deepen their relationship with this profound practice may come and spend a week studying and training within the supportive environment of Gomde Lindholme Hall.
 
Vajrakilaya Retreat 12-14 October 
Vajrakilaya is a wrathful manifestation of enlightened activity. The practice of this yidam deity dispels inner and outer obstacles, especially those hindering our Dharma practice. Vajrakilaya annihilates our negativity and afflictions.
We hope that Chokyi Nyima rinpoche will bestow the empowerment for this profound practice durng his annual seminar this summer.
 
Possible New Year retreat 2018/19
 
Registration will open in February
