Machig Ling Centre Project
A Spiritual Well-Being Centre
“My vision is to build an authentic White Robe Sangha to preserve and promote the doctrine of Chöd of Machig Labdrön, since specifically there is no Chöd temple.”
Chöpa Lama Rinpoche
In our modern time, the art of living simply together and in solidarity is being lost. That is why many among us are looking for preserved places, where we can find serenity, mutual aid and, individual and collective transformation. Preserving our physical, mental and spiritual well-being, preserving the nourishing earth, sharing knowledge and skills for the benefit of all, these are the objectives of the Machig Ling project.
Chöpa Lama Rinpoche, founder of this project, is a Chöpa from a Ngagpa (White Robe Sangha) family, who carries on the legacy of his beloved late father, the Venerable Kalsang Rinpoche. Rinpoche is the third generation of a family of a Chöd lineage. He dedicates all his energy to the transmission of the teachings of Machig Labdrön for the liberation of all sentient beings. Through encounters and experience, Chöpa Lama Rinpoche has understood what is needed in the West and decided to set up the project of a Machig Ling centre, a spiritual well-being community for the benefit of all.
Mother nature provides us with all that is necessary to live on this beautiful and precious Earth. It is important to respect and protect the Earth. Machig Ling center will be an eco-friendly place with projects such as permaculture, environmental development, and renewable energies.

Chödpa Lama Rinpoche wishes these donations to be made with total generosity thus bringing immeasurable merits, described by the Buddha in a very precise manner.
The Buddha’s teaching says:
“Although the world is filled with wealth and treasures, these themselves are not the causes for attaining the unsurpassable state of supreme Bodhicitta. Rather it is only the merit, although it is as small as a tiny mustard seed, of creating a temple or a Buddha statue that is the cause of the unsurpassable state of Bodhicitta which leads to Buddhahood.”
Earth, we live and die in your bosom
In your bosom we feel all our misfortunes and joys.
You are our old ancestral home.
We cherish and love you forever.
Our wish: to transform you into the pure land of our dreams.
Our wish: to transform you into the land of welcome for all creatures.
Open to all without any prejudice.
We want to transform you into a warm, gentle and caring goddess.
Our hope in you is stronger than ever
Therefore we pray to you to be the earth on which we can all live
To make all these wishes come true,
To make all these wishes come true.
Don’t show us the dark side of your character,
Where the scourges of nature are unleashed.
In every corner of our world
May it prosper as a fertile field of peace and joy,
Rich in the leaves and fruits of happiness,
Fragrant with the delicious scents of freedom.
May our countless and infinite wishes be fulfilled.
Composed by the 17th Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje
