IBF

A spiritual home contributing to the promotion of lasting peace through the teachings of the Lord Buddha (the Dhamma).

International Buddhist Foundation (IBF) is a non-profit, charitable Association, set up in 1991 according to the Swiss Civil Code. The Geneva Buddhist Vihara (Temple) of the IBF was founded on 08 March 1992 to achieve the aims and objectives of the IBF. Everyone who seeks refuge in the Dhamma is welcomed by the Temple.

Building Fund Project

IBF, as one of the oldest spiritual shelters in Geneva which opens its doors to those who seek the refuge in Dhamma, has been delivering its services for over 30 years with very limited resources. With the increasing number of spiritual guidance seekers, IBF has felt the necessity of moving to a modest spacious place for the continuance of its benevolent services to the needy.
