Samten Dzong Project

Located in the Alentejo region of Portugal, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, is Bodhicitta’s Samten Dzong. A place for the study and practice of Dharma, thtat is under the spiritual guidance of Chamtrul Rinpoche, and blessed by the unbroken lineages of Shakyamuni Buddha and Padmasambhava,

Samten Dzong was the inspiration of Vishnou and Jean-Michel, two old students of the great masters, Kangyur Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Having already given so much of their time and energy to Samten Dzong, Vishnou and Jean-Michel say that it now needs more volunteers to help bring it to fruition. Accomodation, food and being a part of a spiritual community will be offered to anybody who can help to plant trees, cultivate vegetables, and to construct retreat huts, a temple and a place to accomodate events with visiting teachers and students.
