SHOPChenrezig Institute’s Reception and Dharma & Gift Shop offers a range of beautiful gift items as well as providing support materials for Buddhist study and malameditation. We stock a large range of Buddhist statues, books, incense, prayer flags and prayer beads as well as many Tibetan and Nepali hand-crafted goods. The shop is a great place to find the perfect spiritual gift as well as providing students with all they need to study and practice Buddhism.

Reception is also located in the Gift Shop so its a great place to find out about Accommodation, Meals and Courses plus booking in for them.

Please Note: Proceeds from Dharma items are never used for general operating expenses – the money is always used for Dharma-related activities, such as maintaining statues and pictures in the Gompa, sponsoring appropriate FPMT projects on behalf of the students of Chenrezig Institute, and helping spread the teachings far and wide.
