Portobello Buddhist Priory, a temple of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives

Zen Buddhism in Edinburgh, Scotland


"Dana" is the ancient Buddhist principle of trust and generosity of spirit. All Priory teachings and activities are offered as dana, and there is no fee for them. In order to cover the running costs of the Priory, we are grateful for all donations, which are also a form of dana.

There is a donations bowl in the Priory and all offerings from people who pay tax can be gift-aided, where the government contributes an extra 25p for every £1 donated. Further details on this at the Priory.

Thank you
