What we're about

Where are we? Who are we? We have no place to lay our heads on, like drifting clouds and flowing waters. Our purpose is to awaken everyones true nature and offer a refuge for meditation and a place to reexamine the wisdom words of the Holy and Wise Ones. When there is an obstacle in our way, we gather and re-examine inside and outside until we finally see the true nature. Through endless investigation and clarification we strive forward. Householder and the homeless in mutual dependence, reach the true path! Who is the true householder and the homeless? ​

Zen meditation retreat - 3 days

Lambda Zen Temple

CHF 250.00

The monthly Zen meditation retreat at Lambda Zen Temple is a three day meditation retreat, where we reexamine the true self through a very simple hermitagelike life-style. The retreat starts monthly every third Friday at 10am (10:00) and ends Sunday at 3pm (15:00).

Everyone concentrates her consciousness on the given task while working. To work is to cleanse the mind. Work is an opportunity to meditate and become awakened to the real self. A small event in daily life can become an important moment of awareness for one who is in great darkness. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.

Zen pilgrim retreat - 7 days

Lambda Zen Temple

CHF 500.00

Twice a year, during the first weeks of May and August, we have a Pilgrim Retreat during which we cross the Alps of Glarus. The pilgrimage leads through rough terrain and takes place in all weather conditions.

It is mandatory to participate in at least one monthly retreat at Lambda Zen Temple before applying for the Pilgrim Retreat.

Everyone concentrates her consciousness on the given task while working. To work is to cleanse the mind. Work is an opportunity to meditate and become awakened to the real self. A small event in daily life can become an important moment of awareness for one who is in great darkness. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.
