Benchen Phuntsok Ling Summer Course 2023 -- Allmuthen
After two years of a complete shutdown due to COVID 19, last year Benchen Phuntsok Ling started to opening again step-by-step for onsite courses. Yet the summer coure 2022 was still online.
Fortunately, this year's summer course will once again take place on-site!
These are the dates for the Summer Seminar 2023 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling in Allmuthen, Belgium.
We are very happy to continue the series of summer courses in Allmuthen!
Like every year the week before the actual teaching period a three-days Drölkar (White Tara) ritual will happen and after the teaching period a three-days Gönkar (White Protector) retreat will take place.
Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche has, therefore, chosen Khenpo Karma Yonten Gyatso and Lama Ngawang Tsultrim to perform the summer course onsite in Allmuthen.
Please note that this year no Zoom meeting will be offered.

For this life and also for future lives it is very important to practise mindfulness. A lot of things go wrong in our lives. This comes from a lack of mindfulness. The distracted mind is an unhappy mind.
Mindfulness can be trained. If we want good health, success at work and just a happy life in general, it is very important to train one's mindfulness.
Benchen Buddha Maitreya Project starts project
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.
