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.

KSDE Autumn Programme 2021

It has been a delight to welcome back dear friends to the Centre, as well as making as many new ones. And as long as we all remain vigilant in these uncertain times, we will do our best to continue providing Guided Meditation Sessions and Dharma Teachings, both in KSDE’s Shrine Room and online.

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

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation : )
