Teachings with Gerd Boll

Diamond Way teacher Gerd Boll drove a long way from Northern Germany to celebrate 10 years of EC with us, and gave lectures about Buddhism in daily life.


Stupa celebration

When he inaugurated the Swiss Stupas Lopön Tsechu Rinpoche advised that the sangha should come together every year to celebrate the stupas’ “birthdays” together.

This year we have the honor of hosting these celebrations at the Europe Center – because our beautiful Long Life Stupa of course originates from Bern/Switzerland.

You are very warmly invited for a weekend of meditation and festivities at the stupa, as well as lectures about Stupas by our Stupa-Experts.

More details coming soon!
