 Alice Maxwell - TeacherAlice Maxwell

Alice was raised in a Buddhist family, her father being one of Akong Rinpoche's very first students in the UK. This has led her to have a lifelong connection with Samye Ling and when she finished school she took a year out to do a Ngondro retreat. Since then, Alice has gone on to deepen her experience of the Dharma by completing a 4 year retreat and then a 3 year 3 month retreat, and now is living on Arran

Seven Points of Mind Training

The seven points of mind training is a system of training the mind based on a text by Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche.  Through the use of pithy dharma slogans we are taught to develop compassion, equanimity and loving kindness towards others, and to make use of whatever life throws at us to further our spiritual development.  The text begins by contemplating the four ordinary foundations of the precious human life, impermanence, karma cause and result and the unsatisfactoriness of conditioned existence.

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
