KSD London is a branch of the Tibetan Buddhist Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery in Scotland, established in 1967 by Dr Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche and is under the direct guidance of Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche. As part of the Kagyu Tradition, one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, headed by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje. We run a programme of courses and workshops focusing on meditation, mindfulness, and Buddhism in Bermondsey, near the heart of central London. There is a beautiful shrine room for personal practice as well as a quiet and comfortable reading libary to enjoy a moment of relaxation. Our tearoom also offers a wide selection of Buddhist books and meditation books from all traditions, together with a variety of related items, such as incense, meditation cushions, statues and malas. 

We are currently raising funds to support the incredible efforts of ROKPA Poland in providing food and medicine for a shelter for Ukrainian women and children in Wroclaw
