The Necessity

Without Buddhist Buildings, probably today we would have no possibility to get Buddhist teachings from a qualified capable teacher. With the Words of Drupon Dechen Rinpoche: "If there are no Abbeys, you can sit in a cave practicing Buddhism. That is also Buddhism. Himself the Buddha says: If there is no Abbey, there will be no method in the practice and no development in the teachings."


Therefore it is a tradition in the Karma Kagyu Lineage to build and preserve temples and abbeys.
For this reason it has be an extraordinary meaning in the west to build temples and abbeys. The temple will be open for all Buddhist traditions.
