For organizational reasons, the association "Karma Tengyal Ling, Buddhist Community" has two forms of membership.

Promoting membership

Promoting membership is the regular support of the work of the association. The membership fee theoretically allows us to cover the running costs. But we would need a lot more sponsors for that.

What does membership in this association mean? Each club member can be understood as part of the whole activities. This means that each member carries a small pillar of the whole institution. Each member is an important part of everything that is created here. So one belongs to the core of the family of this Buddha activity. Because of regular support, the necessary payments can always be made with great care and certainty.

Once a year a summer party is held especially for the members. These are the focus of this festival.

If you would like to become a promoting member, please print out the membership form and send it to us:

Neat membership

Whatever the club is, it is first and foremost a tool. The association is the connecting link to society, in the form of the state. In order that everything runs according to the laws of the country, we have an association structure, which gives the state the possibility to be able to see that everything goes with right things.

The number of neat members is limited from seven to nine in order to ensure a stable work in the implementation of the statutes. These members fulfill the legal conditions.

About us

We are people who follow the teachings of the Buddha. The founders of Karma Tengyal Ling as an institution are the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa and the 3rd Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche. The institution is supported by the association of the same name. The purposes of the association include the establishment of a temple and the construction of a monastery or temple complex in which the study and practice of Buddhist teaching is made possible.

Building Project

Based on the current property here in Stechlin-Menz a Buddhist Institution in the form of a monastery-temple complex is planned. It is designed to provide access to the Buddhas Teachings in their entirety. The quiet and remote location far out of villages is ideal for study, practice and meditation. The site is also designed to be a place for dialogue and exchange of different religions and world views.

The Institute

You need a few days rest, want to retire from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, long for silence and nature? Far from the noise of the big city, you will not hear more road noise. You can join us in our meditations, or retire to our meditation rooms alone. You can be silent for a few days or spend a few hours of the day in contemplative participation (Karma Yoga).

What you can do

Give joy. As with all things of life, mental support is very important to any project. It is the simplest and ultimately the most effective support. Because enjoying a project encourages others to support this. So even the financially weakest person is able to let the temple and monastery project of the Buddhist Institute for the benefit of all become reality. We would be very happy if we could infect you with our enthusiasm and our joy.
