歐洲八蚌寺是尊貴的金剛持慈尊廣定大司徒巴仁波切的歐洲主座， 專為歐洲德語區的佛法學生設立。這個寺院由確傑喇嘛帕默於 1997 年創辦及修建，並持續由她領導。目前歐洲八蚌寺的城市寺院的建設已經基本完成，而閉關中心的建設仍在進行中。由於歐洲的戰爭影響，材料成本和还款利率都倍增了。受限於此，儘管建設工作已完成97％，我們目前無法繼續展開工作。歐洲八蚌寺整體建造花費為400萬歐元，而目前我們仍欠款300多萬歐元。

What we’ve done so far: City Intistitute and Retreat Institute
Facts, figures and financial plan
1. Monthly fix costs as per figures
In 2022 it was 9,245 € monthly (raised energy, insurance costs, water, etc. for our Retreat institute after completion not included yet)
Owing to rising costs and inflation due to the war in Europe, we estimate to surpass appr. 12,000 € per month starting with 2023 (raises due to ongoing buildup not included yet). Starting with 2024, we will face a whopping monthly 17,000 €!
Our fix costs are composed of mortgage rates for both houses and other fixed costs such as gas, water, electricity, insurances, communal fees, webhosting, etc. Electricity and insurance, as well as communal fees for the retreat center will rise tremendously.
The detailled table is available with our office. The fix costs however do not include any administrative expenses whatsoever since everything is volontarily and honorarily done by students of the dharma and each and every Euro is being spent directly for our activities.
2. Next step of adaption in the Retreat Institute
Development of the entire farm to become a functioning retreat center started summer of 2019 and are on the way: demolition, reconstruction, adaption and afterwards furnishing, including statues, thrones, etc. With the pandemic and Chöje Lama Palmo’s severe illness, we are currently unable to predict the Retreat Institute’s opening, enabling us to welcome the first retreatants for individual retreats, overseen by a Palpung lama.
3. Completion of the City Institute
The big construction work is completed! Only the 8 stupas commemorating the 8 most important steps in Lord Buddha’s life, 1000 Buddhas and prayer wheels along one side of the facade are missing!
You may support us project-bound, donate once or recurring, become a supporting member, organize activities in consultation with and in favor of Palpung Europe, write a will in our favor and so much more.
