Prayers & Formal Kadampa Retreats

About Prayers


​JLC has a programme of daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly prayers which are free for everyone to join. We will be posting more detailed information about these prayers soon, but in the mean time you can look at our calendar to see when they're on.

About Retreats

​In addition to our beginners retreats Jangchub Ling Centre hosts several formal retreats based around Kadampa Buddhist practice. These retreats are free and can be attended by anyone except where indicated, but if you have not been on one of these retreats previously we recommend getting in touch first, so you can check if they're right for you. We ask that all attendees arrive five minutes before session time so that we can start promptly.

Upcoming retreats:

Vajrasattva Retreat

‘Through the power of recitation and visualization, and through receiving Vajrasattva’s blessings, we will gradually purify our mind and our actions. In this way we can improve our qualities as a human being, and eventually become a special holy being.’
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Teachings on Vajrasattva, 1993

This year's NKT Spring Festival provides us with the opportunity to receive the Vajrasattva empowerment which will help make this practice more powerful but please note you do not need to have received this empowerment to attend this day or to participate in the retreat sessions.
