Ways to help – Our new Centre

In September 2015, Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche announced that a new building has been acquired for our centre.  The historic building in Leith will become the new home of Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh.

The estimated refurbishment cost of essential, professional work and materials for the new centre (i.e. building, plumbing, etc.) is just £35,000 if we save on other work by doing as much as we can ourselves.

  • £10 buys an environmentally-friendly LED lightbulb
  • £20 buys a tin of paint
  • £150 pays for carpeted seating areas in the Shrine Room (4 required)
  • £200 pays for lighting in the Shrine Room
  • £1,500 sponsors wood flooring for the Shrine Room
  • All the above is possible with no extra costs for labour, thanks to the dedication of skilled volunteers.

All donations of funds, skills and resources are most gratefully received. Together we can build a better world.

Visit our donations page if you would like to support this exciting development.

If you are able to help, please complete this form with your name, contact email address, skills, any other resources and availability you have in Spring 2016.
