Maitreya Instituut Amsterdam
Anyone who has an interest in Tibetan Buddhism, who would like to know something (more) about meditation or who is simply curious about our center is more than welcome to come by for the meditations or classes that we give. Maitreya Amsterdam has courses for those who have little or no knowledge of Buddhism and those who are well versed in Buddhist theory, practice and philosophy.
On Monday and Wednesday evenings there are guided meditations in English, from 19.00 – 19.45 hrs.
Our most important teachers are Ven. Losang Gendun, who is a Western Buddhist monk, and Annelies van der Heijden. The latter regularly gives courses in English.
Maitreya Amsterdam also regularly organises Pujas (Buddhist offering ceremonies) and Sutra recitations where English texts are usually used.
Besides the Buddhist program there are other courses such as thangka painting, the filling of Buddha statues and rolling mantras, all of which can also be followed in English.
