Karmapa Center of Education (KCE), a Buddhist model school founded by Thaye Dorje, H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

Are you interested in visiting KCE and spend some time in our center?

Working and living with children is truly rewarding. And even more so within the setting of a Dharma center, and beautiful surroundings of the Himalayas. KCE, the new educational project of Gyalwa Karmapa  combines traditional Buddhist content usually taught in monasteries and modern education.

We look forward to your visit!

KCE has a permanent team, but we are always happy to welcome guests who would like to visit us for a longer or shorter period of time.

As our guest, you are invited to take part in our daily routine. Outside of school hours, you can do crafts, play games, engage in sports or organise yoga and other activities with the students. We are open to your talents and experiences that you would like to share with us.

You are also very welcome to participate in our morning and evening pujas in the temple. Of course, the temple can also be used for your private practice.

In addition, the beautiful landscape around KCE is very inviting for hiking, and day trips to nearby Sikkim or Darjeeling are also possible.
