About

Welcome to Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh (KSDE) Buddhist Meditation Centre. We are the city branch of the world renowned Samye Ling Monastery, which was established in 1967 as the first Centre of Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

The centre offers a beautiful space for meditation and courses to benefit mind, body and spirit. People of all all faiths and none are welcome.

Winter Events and Holiday Dates

It’s well and truly winter, so to warm the cockles of your heart (whatever they are?) we bring you glad tidings of our Dharma events, both at KSDE and Online. The Centre will be closed for the winter holidays from the week beginning December 20th 2021 and will re-open on the week beginning January 10th 2022.

To keep everyone safe, we still need to limit places, so booking online is still a requirement for any sessions you wish to attend in person. But please don’t book if you are unwell or unsure you can come.
