The Temple

The heart of the monastery-temple complex is the temple. In line with the open conception of the institution the temple is home to three shrine rooms, one for each of the three well established Buddhist traditions here in the west, which are Theravada, Zen and Vajrayana. If required all three shrine rooms can be joined to form one big hall.

Additionally the temple includes accommodations for high Buddhist teachers such as H.H. The Dalai Lama and
H.H. Gyalwa Karmapa and also provides accommodations for resident teachers and visiting teachers. An extensive Buddhist library resides directly under the roof.
