This message just in from the Europe Center:
Dear friends and supporters,
Even before we had it, the Europe Center idea symbolized the rising international spirit of Diamond Way Buddhism. In 2007, this decade-old wish materialized with Gut Hochreute in the foothills of the German Alps. Building on what was already present, we began with the first International Summer Course and then made the most out of the 4 following years. Thanks to that, thousands have already caught the “international EC virus” and our over 600 centers worldwide are today interconnected like never before.
Now it’s time to finish what we started. From the experience gained arose a natural next step, extending the EC with a large new gompa, living space for guests & residents, and various maintenance and working areas. Once finished, the potential of the EC will fully blossom, making all its functions accessible to ever more people: hosting big courses with our Lamas throughout the year, nurturing a lively international exchange, showing a proud, mature face of Diamond Way Buddhism to the world and much more.
