Kadampa Meditation Center Edinburgh provides a quiet and comfortable environment where people can experience inner peace, learn about Modern Buddhism and meditate with a community of people who are all trying to improve the quality of their life, and our world, by improving the quality of their mind. Based on the books of the modern day Buddhist teacher, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we present Buddha’s teachings in an accessible manner that can easily be integrated into our modern lives.
