Day of the Temple Switzerland


You are most welcome to the day of the temple. The Honora Zen Monastery opens the gate once a year for the public. It is also possible to visit the non-public areas of the Zen Temple.

Once a year the gates are open for the public. Welcome the day of the temple in Switzerland.

The Great Zen Way is gateless, approached in a thousand ways. Once past this checkpoint you stride through the universe.


Enjoy a meal from the temple kitchen.

The term medicine stone is used as euphemism for dinner. According to the monastic rule it was not allowed to eat in the evening. Medicine stones were originally warm stones that the monks and nuns held on their tummy, to mitigate the hunger feeling and to give warmth on cold days.
