Today we can meet them as the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje and the 4th Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche.
We are more an institution than a community. This institution is supported by the association of the same name. It is registered since 1984 and charitable. We understand the association as a tool for the implementation of the purpose of the association. The purposes of the association include the establishment of a temple and the construction of a monastery and temple complex in which the study and practice of Buddhist teachings is made possible.
Over many years, the Dharma teacher Jogi Horst R. Brumm and the retired doctor Dr. Brigitte König have been the mainstay of the Institute. Both were for many years the chairmen of the association.
In 2021, Jobst and Kathrin Pflanz took over the board of the association.
