Welcome to the templestay program for digital nomads. The Lambda Zen Temple is a place for contemplating on the true self through a very simple hermitage-like lifestyle. As a digital nomad you can meditate and work at the zen temple. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.
It is the first Zen temple for developers and Zen practitioners who are interested in a longterm templestay program connected to IT activities. The morning and evening meditation is the same as in all the Zen Temples, but the daily modules are especially work on software projects. Our purpose is to awaken each and everyone's true nature and to share compassion with the community. The Great Way is gateless, approached in a thousand ways. Once past this checkpoint you stride through the universe.
Thank you for helping us to offer a place for meditation and emptiness.
