A property has been identified for the new center in Köln and is currently under contract pending appropriate permissions. See the rendering and plans below.
Kadampa Meditation Centre Oberhausen
In addition, KMC Oberhausen (previously Tushita KBC) has a new Resident Teacher, Kadam Holger Hetzel, and is establishing branches in the Rhine Valley to meet the spiritual needs of the people who live there.
The Resident Teacher at KMC Oberhausen and the new center in Cologne is Kadam Holger Hetzel.
Kadam Holger is greatly admired for his warm and open nature and his clear instructions, which always focus on the practical meaning of Buddha's teachings for our everyday life.
