about tharpaland


Following Venerable Geshe-la's suggestion, Tharpaland KMC was established in Germany in 2012. originally an International Retreat Centre  Tharpaland transformed into a Kadampa Meditation Centre in 2019. The main reason for this transformation was so that Tharpaland would be more accessible to the people of Berlin and the local area.

Nowadays, the Centre and its community is intertwined with KMC Berlin, located at the heart of this vibrant city, both serving the people from Berlin and beyond

Tharpaland is based in Schloss Sommerswalde just 25km from Berlin and yet in a different world. The Centre offers more than 55 rooms for accommodation including eight comfortable, modern en-suite apartments for solitary retreat. You can now  plan and book your own solitary retreat.

The café in the historic "Garden Hall" has become very popular for Berlin day-trippers and local people alike. As for the future, the International Temples Project plans the construction of a Kadampa Temple for World Peace on site.

The Resident Teacher at Tharpaland is Gen Kelsang Ananda, the National Spiritual Director for Germany, Slovenia, Romania, and Czech Republic.  Also various German Resident Teachers visit throughout the year to teach courses such as the Weekend Getaway which has been a great success - nurturing and light meditation courses to relax and replenish. Throughout the year, there is a great variety of regular courses - "Meaningful Sundays", in-depth and seasonal retreats such as the popular Winter Retreat, Post-Festival retreats, empowerments, and the annual German Festival and Dharma Celebrations.

Tharpaland KMC is now fully serving people locally, nationally and internationally - all this possible only through the kindness of a harmonious residential community, dedicated to fulfilling Venerable Geshe-la's vision.
