The Precious Sanctuary of the Supreme Path

An Ideal Place for a Dedicated Lifestyle...

The Dharma teachings, supported by regular meditation retreats, lead to seeing Buddhism as a lifestyle dedicated to the development of an authentic presence based on attentive awareness.

THEG-CHOG NORBU LING® houses a semi-monastic community dedicated to the study and practice of the Buddha Dharma. Its development rests on daily training in karmayoga.
