Our Team

We are a spiritual group of lay people in different stages of life with different professions. This diversity enriches our Buddhist approach and the work for the two centers.


Through our members, through regular as well as irregular engagement of many helpers through active commitment, financial donations, donations in-kind and through participation in events such as "Kalapa Care", our centers are sustained in the long term.


Every two years the members of the association elect the board of the Association for the Promotion of Buddhist Values. The board members coordinate externally and internally and make decisions on fundamental issues affecting the two centers.

We invite all interested parties to participate and shape our centers. More Info
