Let Kadampa Meditation Centre Edinburgh be your partner

on Your Journey to Inner Peace with Meditation & Modern Buddhism Classes

What we offer

As a registered charity KMC Edinburgh has been benefiting the people of Edinburgh and the East Coast for over 20 years providing authentic and practical meditation courses across the region.

In 2018 we moved to a new premise on Leith Walk, creating a beautiful meditation hall, cafe and bookshop, providing a dedicated space for the development of inner peace. For now we continue to offer our support through online activities, but we hope in the future you may visit us here and experience the stillness and peace of this special place, dedicated to world peace.

what people say about us

Friendly & welcoming atmosphere. I am new to this but found the session very worthwhile. I left thinking differently.

Thank you Gen-la Kunsang and to everyone at KMC Edinburgh for 'coming into my home' via online streaming and bringing me such profound and beautiful teachings and blessings. I feel so deeply grateful.

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.


Just wanting to let you all there at KMC Edinburgh know what it means to me, us, at home to have these wonderful courses and meditations and prayers streamed to us  and how it is definitely helping us  as we make progress on the Spiritual path.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these opportunities to hear and listen and be encouraged to contemplate and engage in these  teachings.
May I practise what i have learned and benefit myself and others supported by  your great kindness.

Thank you for all the wonderful teaching and friendship you have given us this year.

Looking forward to learning more (and trying harder) in the new year.

We are here because we want a new conception of what life is and who we are

ONLINE Meditation classes available on Livestream & catch up

We know that if we always think what we’ve always thought, we’ll always feel what we’ve always felt. And we want different outcomes. We want different outcomes for ourself, for our family, for our communities.

We look at the tarnished history of our world, and the sufferings, and the injustices, and we want something different – a different outcome.

And that’s going to require different ideas, new ideas, new ways of thinking. 

Everyone welcome

To KMC Edinburgh

part of the new kadampa tradition – international kadampa buddhist union
