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.
