Meditation House (Gonpa)

avats2

His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche solemnly consecrated the territory of the new meditation house in 2011. The building process of the Milarepa Meditation Center was financed by the generous donation of the Vietnamese couple, Le Tanh Binh and To Ti Thu Ha, along with the help of many other dharma brothers.

The construction started in 2012, and after two years the Meditation Center was inaguarated blissfully by His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche in June, 2014. The construction of the Meditation Center could not have been realized without the compassionate support and help of the Zalaszanto Mayor Office, the villagers, the Bakony Forest Company and the National Park of Balatonfelvidék. The Center is continuously being developed.

The Milarepa Meditation Center has Japanese style outside and Tibetan inside. It welcomes everyone who is  wishing to find inner peace in this beautiful place. We are fortunate to host the greatest masters of our lineage numerous times a year with events that last for several days providing a possibility for the international sanghas to get to know each other and develop a stronger connection. In addition to that the two resident Drupons, Venerable Drupon Konchok Lhundup and Drupon Konchok Jigmet give teachings, empowerments and offer retreat possibilities regularly.

Inside the Center we can glimpse into Sakyamuni Buddha’s lifestory when we walk clockwise looking at the big pictures on the wall. You can see the thanka’s of the masters of the Drikung Kagyu lineage under the upper windows, in a chronological order. The inside ornament painting was made by Venerable Drupon Konchok Lhundup and Venerable Drupon Konchok Jigmet themselves.

The opening hours of the Center is available on our homepage at the monthly programme link.
