About Buddhist Centres of  Martsang Kagyu Tibetan Buddhism

The Martsang Kagyu International Head office currently has two centres; one in the East; the Taichung Centre in Taiwan, and the other in the West; the London Centre in the UK.  As both centres are the first to be formed they will provide the model for future centres in the East and West respectively.

There are two main objectives we would like our centres to achieve.  One is to promote to the wider community the many benefits of Buddhist practice; the increase in the well-being and happiness of its practitioners, and thereby enhance good relationships within society as a whole. The other is to rebuild the Martsang Kagyu Education Institution so that students can with spiritual support study to complete their training, and go on to teach within the institution.  .

The Taichung Centre was established in 2008 in Taichung, Taiwan, and represents the head office of the Martsang Kagyu organisation. It offers a place to provide the many benefits of Buddhist practice to the wider community. This includes an increase in the well-being and happiness of its practitioners and various ceremonies such as the ‘New Year Wishing Prayer’. All such practices help to enhance and develop good relationships within society as a whole. The Main Hall of the Martsang Kagyu Centre in Taichung, Taiwan, seats 180-230.

The Taichung centre promotes the Martsang Kagyu lineage, in addition to supporting several charitable causes in Tibet, India and Taiwan:

The education of children continues to be very important, and in India where many orphaned Tibetan children now live, we offer school scholarships.  We also provide clothing and food for the children, and disadvantaged families living in India.
