From January 1st 2018, Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh is offering all Dharma teachings free of charge. Our new Programme also provides a wealth of weekly Pujas, Meditation Sessions and Exercise Classes for health of mind and body. See our Courses and Weekly Programme web pages for bookings and information on all courses and events.
However, it is the precious Buddha Dharma which is the very heart of KSDE because of its invaluable benefit to beings. As it is beyond price, we wish to make the Dharma freely available to everyone. Therefore we hope that those who can, will support and enable the Centre to provide this much needed service for the good of all.
As Drupon Rinpoche said “The friends and sponsors of each Dharma Centre should take responsibility for its upkeep and enable it as a place where Buddha Dharma can flourish”. Inspired by this message, and with the blessings of Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, we cordially invite you to become a Friend of Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh.
Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh is undoubtedly an iconic building, but it’s what happens on the inside that makes it such a precious resource. Dedicated volunteers work for free to keep the place running, but there are still considerable costs involved in the Centre’s upkeep and its sustainability as an oasis of peace, health, learning and inspiration.
By becoming Friends of Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh we can all take care and ownership of our Centre. In this way, we can enable the Buddha Dharma to be free for everyone and so cultivate the virtue of impartial generosity. Blessings all round.
For a modest offering of £5, or £10 a month, (the price of a cup of coffee a week), we can make it happen!
