I feel very fortunate to have discovered the Edinburgh Kadampa Meditation Centre. With the help of the loving kindness and warm welcome of the teachers and staff there I have been introduced to teachings on Buddha Dharma which I know will provide me with a path to happiness I could not have found anywhere else. I am at the beginning of a learning process. I look forward to building on that and wish to express a deep gratitude to everyone at The Kadampa Centre who contribute towards that lovely experience. I will be forever grateful.
A heart felt thank you for both of these sessions and teachings today. I found the 2nd session very powerful and the teachings today have really given me things to think about which I’m excited to reflect on. I’m so grateful to be a part of this and thank you for your calm and considered wisdom and guidance.
