Ganden Chökhor is a Chod and Meditation Centre for the promotion of Tibetan Buddhist culture in the Swiss Alps. Our centre conforms to the recommendations of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and as a place of retreat is open to all traditions of Buddhism and all interested parties. We organize courses and events on various topics for beginners and advanced students.

We are fortunate to welcome top-class lecturers from all over the world who work together with our course participants at the interface between Eastern and Western culture. Besides classical Buddhist topics such as Lam Rim, Philosophy and Vajrayana, there is a special focus on Chod Meditation. Lama Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche, the spiritual director of the center, holds all major transmission lines of this practice.

With various yoga, philosophy and meditation courses, there is also a wide range of secular courses for those interested in every belief tradition.
