Meet the people of the Bahá'í Community

DEN HAAG, ARCHIPELBUURT EN WILLEMSPARK

Feel welcome to the Bahá'í and have an open-minded encounter with this religion. Prayer and meditation have the goal to bring unit...y and influence our behavior. Bahá'u'lláh, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith, said: "The improvement of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct." What are pure and goodly deeds that improve ourselves and our neighbourhood? Meditation and service are therefore inseparable linked. You will get an introduction to the course 'Reflections on the Life of the Spirit’. One of the concepts we learn to apply is that humanity is one. There is no us and them. The fee you pay is not sent to the Bahá'í Community itself but is sent to Refugee Workin the Netherlands.

Visit the Sakya Thegchen Ling

DEN HAAG, KONINGSPLEIN

The name of this temple tells the target. Sakya is the name of the order; Thegchen means Mahayana, the vehicle of the Bodhisattvas...; Ling means location. Officially, the aim is defined as: to promote interest in and the study of Mahayana Buddhism by studying, practicing and propagating it and also preserving and continuing the Tibetan culture. Sakya Thegchen Ling achieves this by providing lectures, courses, study evenings, information and education and by translating original Tibetan Buddhist texts. The Sakya Institute is the only center of the Buddhist order in the Netherlands. Since the exodus of thousands of Tibetans from Tibet in 1959, His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave his full attention to the preservation and continuation of Buddhism and Tibetan culture. Similarly, His Holiness the Sakya Trizin, the head of the Sakya order, created a foundation, after his flight to India to safeguard the unique philosophical and meditative tradition of the Sakya order for his followers. He founded a new Sakya Monastery in 1964 and in 1980 the Sakya Thubten Namgyal Ling Institute, a school for monks. These became the new shelters for the Sakya order, a tradition dating back to 1073.
