The advancement of the Buddhist faith in accordance with the Vajryana (Tibetan) tradition. To manage the estate under Buddhist ecological principles together with local environmental groups and to promote the research, study, preservation and restoration of the natural habitat.
Gomde, Lindholme Hall Estate provides a refuge for all those who wish to experience an inner calmness in a tranquil setting through the teachings of the Buddha.
Gomde is uniquely situated on a 180 acre estate surrounded by a national nature reserve. The care and conservation of the estate is managed to protect and enhance natural habitats and the environment.
In Tibetan, “ Gom” means to become familiar with something; in this case familiar with the nature of who we really are, through study, reflection and meditation. “De” means a community. So Gomde is a place where the community meditate and practice together.
Gomde is a place for the study of the authentic Buddha Dharma, as taught in the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions and especially the unbroken lineage of the Chokling Tersar.
It is a place to benefit all beings, to help us tame our minds, to transform our disturbing emotions so that our innate kindness, wisdom and compassion can manifest.

- To provide Buddhist teachings in the form of regular daily practice, seminars, courses and individual retreats and to be a place of educational resource.
