Cambridge Amaravati Group

Address: Central Cambridge  Cambridgeshire
Tradition: Theravada
Affiliation: Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, UK
Phone: 07754 588077
Find on:
Contact: Dan Jones  
Notes and Events:

Cambridge Amaravati Group grew from a few local Buddhists, who were interested in the teachings from Amaravati Buddhist monastery near Hemel Hempstead.
They meet fortnightly on Sunday evenings in the members homes to meditate together for about one hour, with a brief Buddhist ceremony beforehand and tea and a chat afterwards. The type of meditation practiced is vipassana or insight meditation. The group functions as a way for meditators to come together, rather than as a taught class, and is open and sociable. Over the years people have joined who are interested in different forms of vipassana meditation, or in different Buddhist traditions altogether. The group also acts as a contact point for people interested in visiting Amaravati, to find out more directly about this sort of meditation and Buddhist way of life.

Centro de Retiros Karuna

Tradition: Non-Sectarian
Phone: +351969301486
Find on:
Founder: Balkrishna Maganlal  
Teacher: Balkrishna Maganlal  
Notes and Events:

Karuna Retreat Center was inspired by the teachings of HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, HH Dudjom Rinpoche, Kangyur Rinpoche and Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche and conceived by Dr. Balkrishna Maganlal after he completed a 3 years meditation retreat

Following a visit to Portugal in the early 90s, Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche suggested the creation of a retreat/mediation center in Monchique,   Construction work started in 1992 and by 1997 many renowned teachers started coming to Karuna. Karuna was built thanks to the generosity, love, effort and hard work of many friends from different backgrounds and nationalities.

Throughout the years, and for the benefit of all sentient beings, many teachers have visited and shared their wisdom at this place. Amongst those  teachers we'd like to mention: Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, Trulshik Rinpoche, Jigme Kyentse Rinpoche, Norbu Rinpoche, Mingyur Rinpoche, Swami Ajay, amongst others.

Karuna hosts, on a regular basis, meditation, yoga and other retreats.

Centro de Retiros Thubten Phuntsog Gephel Ling

Spiritual Director: Lama Gyurme  Email  
Notes and Events:

Secret Mantra, Sang Ngak in Tibetan or Guhya Mantra in Sanskrit, is a synonym of Vajrayana or Tantric Teachings.

And the Community, or Sangha, refers to the set of practitioners of the Secret Mantra, or Mantrikas, also known in Tibetan as Ngakpas, those who use the mantra and belong to the non-monastic Lineage tradition of Tantric Buddhism.

These Teachings and approach to practice are particularly significant for people looking to integrateVajrayana Buddhism with a "normal" family life in the modern world.

The Ngakpa Tradition although not very known in the West has within it some of the greatest and well-known Masters of Tibetan Buddhism including Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa.

Thus, the Guhya Mantrika Community is an international community of Tibetan Buddhist practitioners of the Old Nyingma and Kagyu Schools, founded by Lama Urgyen Chökyi Dorje andLama Gyurme. 

Our centers, retreat places and groups or study centers and practice aim to preserve and disseminate the ancient traditions of the Lineage of Practice of Dzogchen, Mahamudra and Chöd; offering a rare opportunity to access a deeper education focused on the Tibetan Buddhist Yogic Tradition.
