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.
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.
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).
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.
