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.

Summer segues into Autumn

As the summer term draws to a close for the month of August, we would like to thank all our Friends old and new, our brilliant volunteers who enable KSDE to run smoothly and our precious teachers, without whom there would be no Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh!

We are happy to launch our new Autumn/Winter Programme for 2019. Find full information on our weekly schedule of classes, prayer and meditation sessions and our monthly courses, teachings and events online.
