About this project

At the Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Buddhist Center you can get to know and practice authentic Tibetan Buddhism and meditation. Our seminar program offers many opportunities for practicing Buddhists as well as for beginners and those interested.

Located in the middle of nature, Gomde offers the ideal environment to devote yourself to "looking inside" - away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - and to get in harmony with yourself and your environment.

The building in the idyllic hills of the Almtal valley has been renovated, expanded and used for meditation with much love and dedication since 2004.


In the daily meditation sessions, seminars and in everyday life, attempts are made to develop impartial, loving care, compassion and wisdom through the training of one's own mind and to bring it to full development. This exercise is based on the insight that the original awareness (Rangjung Yeshe), which has these qualities, is inherent in every living being.

Living, working and attending seminars in Gomde are an expression of the Buddhist training of the heart and mind, which is based on an attitude of joy and generosity. The careful handling of each other, as well as harmony and tolerance are central concerns.

Gomde was created through donations and voluntary work and is still funded through it. Every cent donated goes into the maintenance, expansion and activity of Gomde and enables many people to study and practice the precious Buddhist teachings.

The volunteers who help in Gomde are provided with food and accommodation with your donation. The house is kept clean for the regular seminars and it is repaired if something breaks. Seminar participants who cannot pay the entire donation proposal for the seminars can participate in our seminars. This year, we are also devoting time and energy to expanding the attic to have even more space for guests. With your donation you will finance these and many other projects and thus support a place that has set itself the task of being there for everyone equally.
