The Benchen Karma Kamtsang Centre in Grabnik is the headquarters of the Association. Seminars, meditation practices and studying of classic texts are regularly held here by Polish and Tibetan lamas.
The Centre is located in Jaktorów, approximately 40 km from Warsaw. It offers the serenity of a secluded place and at the same time easily accessible.
The presence of Lama Rinchen (a Polish student of Ven. Tenga Rinpoche) as well as other lamas living in the Centre or visiting, gives the opportunity to receive advices, empowerments and instructions for practice. The library collection is available on the premises. One can also find texts and other materials for Buddhist practice.
"Benchen Drubde Osal Ling in Poland", the three year retreat centre, was launched in 2009. You may also complete an individual retreat in adjusted trailers remote from the main building. If you are interested in an individual retreat, please consult with Lama Rinchen and book a date in the office.
The Buddhist Culture Centre, co-financed from European Union funds, was created here in 2010. We are building also a temple (named by His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche: Lhakhang Jinlab Trinpung - Clouds of Blessings Temple), a stupa with Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's relics and a kitchen.
The office is open from Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm. Closed on Mondays.
