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 and is avialable, when in residence, to support those who undertake retreat and semi-retreat at the Hall.   
Lama Oser will be giving a series of Teachings and Practice Retreats between June and mid November 2019. We will publish the details of these as soon as possible. Lama will also continue to offer Free Saturday teachings and lead our weekly meditation group.
