The Ganden Chökhor Dharma Centre is a place where the precious Tibetan Buddhist heritage is preserved and nurtured, taking into account the needs and realities of Western society.
Ganden, or in Sanskrit Tushita, is the happy area of Buddha Maitreya, the Buddha of immeasurable love.
Chökhor is the wheel of the Dharma, the teaching of the Buddha. This Dharmarad is very often seen on the gates of monasteries or their main temples. It is flanked by two resting gazelles, reminiscent of the Buddha’s first teaching speech, in the gazelle grove of Sarnath. These two gentle animals are about to stand up to implement the Dharma teachings of compassion in the world.
In particular, we offer:
Introduction to Buddhist teaching, courses and training, especially to the Chöd and Lam Rim lecture series of various Buddhist teachers.
