The Benchen Monastery Community is under the spiritual guidance of both His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and the late Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.
It provides information about the Dharma centers in the East and West which are connected to the Rinpoches. And it provides information about various social welfare projects especially targeted at poor and needy people living in the East.

His Eminence Yangsi Tenga Rinpoche presides over the Vajrakilaya Drubchen Puja at Benchen Nangten Thosam Ling Shedra in Pharping
By practicing Dharma there, it will be a place of extraordinary benefit to oneself and others.
These were his words, which he shared with all his students in a letter before he left for Nepal.
And at the beginning of the 2020 Summer Course, in the advice that H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche gave us via WhatsApp, he said very clearly that we were very fortunate to have been in the Dharma for many years and to have received many precious teachings and initiations from high teachers. We had read so many Dharma books - but without practice we cannot attain liberation and so now was really the time to practice, do retreat and gain experience as much as possible.
Thus, both of our Rinpoches have given the advice and instruction that we should do retreat as much as possible.
These are the dates for the Summer Seminar 2022 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling in Allmuthen, Belgium.
Like every year the week before the actual teaching period a three-days Drölkar (White Tara) retreat will happen and after the teaching period a three-days Gönkar (White Mahakala) retreat will take place.
|White Tara Retreat||Wed. 20.07.||to||Fri. 22.07.2022|
|Teaching||Sat. 23.07.||to||Wed. 03.08.2022|
|White Mahakala Retreat||Thu. 04.08.||to||Sat. 06.08.2022|
In case that due to SARS-CoV-2 (Corona-virus) it is not possible to meet onsite in Allmuthen we will offer an online course instead. Then the dates will be as following.
|White Tara Retreat||Fri. 22.07.||to|| Sat. 23.07.2022 morning
|Teaching||Sat. 23.07.||to||Sat. 30.07.2022|
|White Mahakala Retreat||Sun. 31.07.|

Benchen Buddha Maitreya Project, March 31, 2019
We invite you to kindly support and make donation to “Benchen Buddha Maitreya Project”
By being a part of the “Benchen Buddha Maitreya Project” through funding or contributing to it, in cash or in kind, one continuously generates and accumulates good merits as long as the temple remains for the benefits of all.
The Buddha taught that one of the supreme means of accumulating merit and wisdom through the body, speech, and mind is by building monasteries and teaching centers.
A Monastery is not just
a place that shelters sacred statues, scriptures, and sangha, but also
a place where the sacred teachings of the Buddha are being taught to benefit so many.
A place where actual healing of the mind begins.
It is not a place where only one person comes but thousands will gather.
It is not where only one person teaches but many great teachers will teach.
These are some recent short videos from Benchen primery school. Please click the pictures to watch the videos
