Chères amies, chers amis,  bonne année 2021 !

Nous profitons de ce début d’année pour vous transmettre les voeux de Lama Teunsang que nous avons filmé hier matin.

Tous les lamas et toute l’équipe de Montchardon vous souhaite que 2021 soit plus clémente que 2020 , qu’elle puisse vous apporter paix et bonheur.

Nous espérons pouvoir vous retrouver à nouveau ici dès que la situation le permettra et partager ensemble le précieux Dharma.


Dear friends, Happy New Year 2021!

We would like to take this opportunity to send you the wishes of Lama Teunsang, whom we filmed yesterday morning. 

The lamas and the entire Montchardon team wishes you that 2021 will be more lenient than 2020, that it will bring you peace and happiness.

We hope to see you here again as soon as the situation permits and to share the precious Dharma with you.

Centre de Montchardon – Karma Migyur Ling

8900 Route de Montchardon – 38160 Izeron – France – tel : +33 4 76 38 33 13


This summer the programme will take place under special circumstances, since the Centre can resume activities provided that sanitary measures are strictly observed.

Whether you are vaccinated or not, whether you have a negative PCR test or not, does not change the need to respect sanitary measures.

Your presence in Montchardon implies that you strictly respect sanitary measures in all circumstances.

We are now used to these measures:

  1. Wear a protective mask in the temple during the whole teaching or practice period, in the refectory until you start eating, and in all situations where it is difficult to maintain a 1m distance with others.
  2. Hand wash with hydro-alcoholic gel when entering and leaving the temple and refectory, whenever accessing the self-service area and on all occasions when touching a collective object.
  3. Maintain a distance of 1m around yourself, in the temple, in the refectory and when moving around in the Centre.

Access to the temple will be limited to 70/80 people to respect sanitary distances.

For accommodation, the rooms that accommodate several people will become individual rooms, except for couples or families. The number of places in the dormitory will be reduced to space out the beds. This will allow us to accommodate about 80 people.

The campsite area will be open, and the layout of the tents should follow the same guidelines. Disinfectant will be available in all places where necessary.

These rules must be maintained in Montchardon at all times.


- We have a moral obligation to protect ourselves and others from disease, especially as we live in collective premises.

- It is important to continue to protect Lama Teunsang, whose immunity is greatly diminished, even though he has been vaccinated.

For these reasons, we are asking all those who come this summer to commit to respecting sanitary measures. This commitment will take the official form of a box to be ticked on the registration form, which will allow everyone to come to the Centre with complete peace of mind.

If you cannot or do not wish to follow these guidelines, we ask you not to come to the Centre while these rules are in effect.

The same applies, of course, if you are ill or have symptoms of the virus.

When you leave, if you need to have a PCR test, this can be done in the cities in the area. However, it will be up to you to organise (making an appointment, travelling to and from the test site), because the Centre cannot manage these procedures.
