Change in Dharma Event Fees

Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, our Abbot and spiritual guide recently announced the removal of fees for Dharma activities at Kagyu Samye Ling, in honour of his brother Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche.  Since the time of Lord Buddha there has been a tradition of supporting the Dharma through offerings, and so Lama Rinpoches wish is that Dharma students will continue to support the Dharma through the meritorious act of donations. Kagyu Samye Dzong Glasgow will be doing the same with its Dharma events.

Please note that courses that are not part of Kagyu Samye Dzong Glasgow's Dharma programme will have their own fees. Please review the course description for details.


We are delighted to say that Dr Lobsang will be coming to Glasgow.  For more information about Dr Lobsang and Tibetan Medicine go to http://tararokpa.org/

To book an appointment, please email tibetandoctor@ksdglasgow.org.uk
