An Exciting Announcement

Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche announcement

Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, flanked by Tulku Ogyen Nyima and Ani Rinchen Khandro, makes a historic announcement on the occasion of Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh’s 5th Anniversary at the Walker Street Centre.

A wonderful 5th Anniversary weekend of Refuge Ceremony, Dharma Teachings, Film Show, Meditation Instruction and Guru Rinpoche Shower of Blessing Puja, was crowned with the exciting announcement by Lama Yeshe Rinpoche of a new and larger Centre for Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh!

Just over a month ago, when Ani Rinchen Khandro was in Germany, she asked His Holiness Karmapa to give his blessing for a somewhat larger centre for KSDE. Once back in Edinburgh she found a beautiful building that was originally built in the 1800’s as The Leith Bank. Thanks to the power of His Holiness’s blessing we have managed to acquire it for the new Samye Dzong.

We will start work on the new building in early December and will need many volunteers, both skilled and unskilled, to lend a hand with adapting the building to our needs so please earmark some time in your diary to come and lend a helping hand. We will be giving more details about this in the coming months. Meanwhile, donations to help with the refurbishment and decoration are also vitally important so please do visit the donation page on our website to make your contribution.

For now we will continue to run our regular programme of courses and events at our lovely, but slightly too small, Walker Street Centre and look forward to seeing you there very soon.
