About Lhagsam


Find more balance, joy and harmony by putting meditation into daily practice. Buddhism offers incredibly effective, well-proven methods to do just that and Lhagsam is the place in Zurich, where you can learn more about it.

We offer courses, seminars and guided meditations for beginners and more experienced students in English and German. Through our association with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, we are able to invite the most renowned Western and Asian scholars and practitioners to teach at our center in the heart of Zurich, where you won’t only have opportunities to study and practice, but will also find a circle of friends and a little oasis of peace and harmony in the middle of the city.

We are a Non-Profit Organisation, open for all people from all religious and non-religious backgrounds. Our centre and activities are based on donations, membership fees, and the dedicated work of volunteers. You can contribute by a donationbecoming a member, and/or becoming a volunteer.

At Lhagsam we embrace diversity and equal opportunity with respect to race, religion, ethnicity, culture, gender, age, sexual orientation, and physical abilities.
