‘Mary & the Lama’ at Borders Book Festival

Posted on May 29, 2018

Lama Yeshe Rinpoche, Abbot of Samye Ling monastery Eskdalemuir, and Dr Mary Gunn are appearing at this year’s Borders Book Festival on June 14 to discuss Mary’s book Well.

Mary, who was diagnosed with cancer over twenty years ago, will be sharing how Lama Yeshe’s advice helps her meet her fear and live “well”. Her “insightful and profound” book describes ways in which ancient Buddhist wisdom can offer us all a wider perspective and a steadier path through challenging times.

The annual Borders Book Festival takes place in Melrose and has been running since 2004. This year’s festival takes place from June 14-17 and will feature authors such as Ian Rankin, Sally Magnusson, Kate Mosse and Robert Peston.

‘Mary & The Lama’ takes place at the Knight Frank Marquee on June 14, 6pm-7pm. You can buy tickets here.
