The Edinburgh Buddhist Centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community, an international Buddhist movement whose aim is to make the Buddha’s teachings relevant and accessible to modern western life.

We offer a range of activities from introduction to meditation courses to events for practising Buddhists in Edinburgh. Activities mostly take place from our base at the Healthy Life Centre, 35 – 37 Bread Street, just off Lothian Road.

If you are interested in learning to meditate or find out more about Buddhism, check out our introductory courses. We also run Buddhist meditation taster sessions during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
