Help us save the gonpa

WANGDENLING (tib. „place of power”) is the heart of Slovak Dzogchen community - an ancient form of Tibetan Buddhism, and as a platform for spiritual development it´s mainly a space for meditation, personal retreats, workshops and lectures. You´ll find it within the uniquely magical atmosphere of the White Carpathians nature.

In 2016, thanks to your generosity and support, we managed to build a gonpa here and invited the great Dzogchen master Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, who kindly blessed the place.

Wangdenling gonpa is singular not merely for its design, but also for its potential and possibility to organize regular practices of the Vajra Dance and Yantra Yoga or simply contemplate, relax and recover your strength. Here, you can meet prominent Buddhist teachers, fellow practitioners or friends from the neighboring countries, mostly Czech.

Now our gonpa needs your help!
The wooden foundation pillars bearing the mass of the building are attacked by white rot and need to be replaced soon.
This urgent foundation repair is needed,
so that the gonpa can be of further benefit to all of us.

We are diligently working on the gonpa foundation reconstruction.
More to what is causing the problem HERE. We plan to start with the works in spring/summer 2021.

More about the project and technical solution:

The gonpa building has been drawn up as a unique and ecological structure since the very beginning. From that perspective, it seemed to be the best solution to build it on massive wooden trunks.

Unfortunately, after only a few years we realized that this approach had been, for its level of difficulty, unsuitable for local conditions. A professional pillar sample analysis from 2019 confirmed an advanced attack by fungi and white rot.

Despite repeated and intense chemical treatment, we failed to stop the spread of the decay. At this point, based on a structural evaluation, the only solution for saving this beautiful place is a complete replacement of all the pillars.

We aim at adding many decades to the gonpas lifespan, while keeping its unique design, surrounding countryside and the local environment at heart.



The final project, that we need for dealing with building authorities, is almost ready. We are also awaiting price quotations from the building company we are cooperating with. This will also help us to set our fundrising goal more precisely. We plan to start the reconstruction works at the beginning of august.

Help to save this beautifull place.



Thank you.
