Tibetan Buddhism compliments yoga practice - enhancing spiritual growth and development.
Here at Inspiral Yoga we are firm believers that Tibetan Buddhism is a wonderful compliment to Yoga.
Buddhism is a religious and spiritual practice that is based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, who is more commonly known as Buddah.Some of the more well known teachings of Buddhism consist of:
Karma - The belief that both 'good' and 'bad' actions produce 'seeds' in the mind which then come to fruition in either this life or the next.
Noble Eightfold Path - These eight paths, when followed correctly, defines a complete path or way of living. Each of the eight steps should not be considered individually, and all are interconnecting. These eight paths are defined as: Right understanding, right thought, right action, right speech, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfullness and right concentration.
Kagyu Samye Dzong
There are many great places that teach the ways of Buddhism, and one of the best in Edinburgh is the Kagyu Samye Dzong. Established in 1967, this is the first centre of Tibetan Buddhism in Edinburgh. The Centre operates under Samye Ling’s founder Dr. Akong Tulku Rinpoche and its Abbot, Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche. They have also appointed Ani Rinchen Khandro who is a senior nun which to oversees the KSDE’s development.
