Our Purpose

The short video below was filmed on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Sakya Dechen Ling (at its previous home in Notting Hill). There is a short talk by Lama Jampa on the purpose of a Dharma centre like ours and then some footage of recitation of prayers, followed by socialising in a local cafe.
