Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh is the city branch of 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.

June News and Programme, plus special event updates

Here comes Summer!

And with the long awaited sunshine comes the warmth of blessings in the form of Lama Yeshe Rinpoche and Drupon Rinpoche’s return to the UK, closely followed by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s visit in July.

In order to maximise opportunities to attend teachings at Samye Ling, as well as at Samye Dzong Edinburgh, we have amended our existing programme as follows:

Please note, The Four Thoughts or Four Preliminary Foundations on the all important topic of Samsara, originally scheduled for May 26th, has now been rescheduled for Sunday June 16th. Details of this course and of the Rain of Wisdom session, are shown in our Programme.

May the light of wisdom and compassion shine on one and all.
