We need your help
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the measures taken by the Swiss Government, our revenues have collapsed dramatically, while many of the fixed costs remain more or less at the normal level. Despite rigorous cost-cutting measures, our budget gap is getting bigger every day and cannot be made good by our organisation alone.
Our urgent appeal to all of you: Please support us now with a generous donation and use our online services! With your support we will be able to master these difficult times and secure the future of Ganden Chökhor.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all of you!
President of the Ganden Chökhor Association

Further ways to support us
Become a member of the association
The Ganden Chökhor Association runs the Ganden Chökhor Centre under the spiritual guidance of Lama Lodrö Rinpoche. The more contributing members we are, the better we can plan and prepare for the unforeseen.
Take an online course now
We are continuously expanding our online course offerings, so that even in times of “social distancing” you can access the Buddhist teachings and follow the instructions of Venerable Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche via live stream.
︎➡︎ view the online courses
Sign up for our autumn events
This gives us more planning security with a view to the second half of the year, by when the situation will hopefully have stabilised itself. If the courses cannot be held in the normal way – attendance in person at the centre -, we will inform you in good time and offer you online participation.
