The Maitreya Instituut

The Maitreya Instituut aims to make Tibetan Buddhism accessible in the Netherlands, because the principles and methods presented in Buddhism can contribute to human happiness. The institute has been organizing teachings and courses on meditation and Buddhist philosophy since 1979.

There are study- and medtitation centers in Amsterdam and Loenen.

This (limited) English section of the website focuses only on the teachings and courses that are taught in English, and not on the Dutch program.

Study Program

Apart from guided meditations, prayers and retreats, which are listed on our Program Calendar, our main activities concentrate on the study programs.
These cover all levels, from talks for beginners up to study programs that take years to complete. English courses are given in Amsterdam and Loenen.


FPMT LogoThe Maitreya Institute is affiliated with the 'Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition' (FPMT), an international non-profit organisation, under the spiritual guidance of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The FPMT aims to help as many people as possible to develop loving-kindness and compassion through education, meditation and social projects.
