Happy New Year from KSDE!

Blessings from His Holiness Karmapa and the Lineage Masters at the Kagyu Monlams in India. We are happy to announce that both Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and Drupon Rinpoche also send their best wishes for the New Year to everyone at KSD Edinburgh and have agreed to come and teach here in the summer and autumn respectively. We’ll keep you posted once the exact dates are confirmed.
