‘Jampa’ and ‘Ling’ are Tibetan words meaning ‘place of loving kindness’. The volunteers at Jampa Ling and Rinpoche’s students try to live up to this name by providing a place of tranquility, calm and understanding. One’s life may not always fit together well, and peace and tranquility and a warm welcome can sometimes help.
