Welcome to the digital almsround of the Zen Academy (100 days crowdfunding, annually from early December to mid-March). The academy offers everyone the opportunity to meditate and practice through digital almsgiving. That the Zen temples are always open it takes a lot of effort; therefore everyone gives according to his personal possibilities. The monks and nuns give their lives and the layman also gives what he can. Patronage is essential since the beginning of our activity. Without the mutual support of clergy and laity, there is no place of silence and emptiness possible. It is on the one hand important for independent financing, but also a great sign of confidence. It makes us proud and grateful that our work is appreciated. Our purpose is to awaken each and everyone's true nature and to share compassion with the community. Thank you for helping us to offer a refuge for meditation and emptiness.
Householder and the homeless in mutual dependence, reach the true path!
Every single templedonation is very welcome and will be diligently used for the Zen Academy. Whether you are a private person, a company or an institution, by donating an amount of your choice, you can support us and make a substantial contribution towards enabling us to provide Zen Temples.
If you have any questions, please contact us via email or telephone and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Here you can find more information about the ordination as Zen Monk / Zen Nun. For further questions about the digital almsround contact us at any time via a contact form on the homepage or call. We would be pleased to welcome you in one of our Zen temples. Visit for a cup of coffee, an evening meditation, for a short or long term templestay. The temple gates are always open and the daily routine continues. Examine and share Life & Death with the Zen Nuns and Zen Monks in Switzerland.
