The Maitreya Instituut

The Maitreya Instituut aims to make Tibetan Buddhism accessible in the Netherlands, because the principles and methods presented in Buddhism can contribute to human happiness. The institute has been organizing teachings and courses on meditation and Buddhist philosophy since 1979.
There are two study- and medtitation centers in Amsterdam and Loenen.
Our teachers also regularly give courses in other locations, such as Breda, Deventer and Groningen.

This English section of the website focuses only on the teachings and courses that are taught in English, and not on the Dutch program.

Volunteers

Volunteers are more then welcome in the centers, not only because they help to keep our teachings and courses affordable, but because there are also projects in which your skills can be of great help.

Study Program

Apart from guided meditations, prayers and retreats, our main activities are concentrated on the study programs. These cover all levels, from talks for beginners up to study programs that take years to complete. The English language program includes Discovering Buddhism, Living in the Path and the Basic Program.
