Venerable Rinpoche has created a place of great peace at Jampa Ling from which many thousands of people have already benefited. Ven. Rinpoche’s energy is embodied here; it is a place of great sustenance and renewal. It has long been the aim of Jampa Ling Trust to acquire the Centre and grounds for Ven. Rinpoche and the student body. This effort is kindly supported by the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (please read letter over). Thus Ven. Rinpoche and the trustees are delighted to announce that, as of February 6th 2019, the Centre, all buildings and grounds have now been transferred in the ownership of Jampa Ling Trust CLG.
In reality the transfer began some time ago when Tara House and grounds were generously donated to Jampa Ling Trust by the Cross family. By August 2018, sale of Owendoon House and its surrounding estate had been agreed for a figure of €350,000. By then more than half of the required funds to purchase Owendoon House and grounds were raised through the kindness and generosity of a great many friends and supporters of Ven. Rinpoche and Jampa Ling over many years.
At the beginning of 2019, we finalised a 15-year €180,000 mortgage for the remaining amount (including a financial buffer) from Clann Credo, an Irish organisation which provides loan finance to voluntary, charity and community groups nationwide. The transfer of funds was completed on 6th February 2019.
