Opening the door to Buddha’s Pure Land in Edinburgh

This weekend saw the opening of KMC Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong the General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU.

Since acquiring the building, which previously was home to a bespoke supplier of paints, the community have worked extremely hard to transform it into a beautiful City Temple.

In her opening talk, Gen-la explained how beneficial the center will be for the local people, and how fortunate they are to have the opportunity to meet modern Kadampa Buddhism in their town.

And she encouraged everyone to help with the running of the center and explained the great benefits we receive from such work. Even if we don't have much time for study and meditation, cherishing our center is the same as cherishing others and causes the liberating path to open in our mind.
