Only three weeks after Ven. Geshe-la expressed his vision of Switzerland hosting an International Retreat Centre of Kadampa Buddhism the premises of the newly named Kailash International Retreat Centre have been found and already bought.
All the right causes and conditions seem to have come together to create a beautiful and tranquil place in the heart of the highest Alps conducive for the ripening of all Dharma realizations.
The Retreat Centre offers a spectacular view into the Saas and Matter Valleys with mountains over 4000 meters.. Situated at an altitude of 1500 m the centre will stay cool even in the summer time although amply supplied with sun from morning to evening.
The centre will offer 24 rooms of single or double occupancy, many of them with private balconies, where private retreats of shorter and longer duration can be done or where one can participate in guided retreats.
We are looking forward to your visit in a couple of months when our new retreat centre opens its doors for Kadampa retreaters from all over the world, creating the cause of an abundant harvest of virtue for peace and happiness for all.
