Samye Ling Tea Party 2011

People travel hundreds of miles to attend Samye Ling's Annual tea Party as so do I, indulge in cream cake, sandwiches, nibbles and meet new and old Dharma friends and teachers.

Sherab's tribute book as presented to him by Akong Rinpoche.
A new book, put together as a tribute for the Tibetan Thangka painting master, Sherab Palden Beru, on the special occasion of his 100th birthday celebrations that was held at the Annual Tea Party, 14th August 2011, of the Kagyu Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Scotland.

This beautifully illustrated book was recently complied at the request of Dr. Akong Tulku Rinpoche. Within there is a brief biography, tributes from friends and students, and many illustrations of some of his works, a number of which have never been published before.
This can be viewed and ordered by clicking this link.
