Doris Wolter is country coordinator for KF in Germany. She helps care for the sponsors and provides information to the media and individuals about our work.
Doris studied literature, comparative religion, and fine arts in Berlin. She worked for Rigpa Germany for 13 years, and served on the board of the German Buddhist Union for 8 years. For 17 years she has coordinated and overseen the development of the study programme “Knowing – Understanding – Experiencing: Buddhist Wisdom in the Diversity of Traditions,” for the German Buddhist Union, inviting speakers from all the main Buddhist traditions in the spirit of inter-Buddhist dialogue. She also initiated a website with material on Buddhism for German school teachers. In 2008, under the guidance of Rinpoche and in cooperation with Arne Schelling and Roland Walter, she co-founded the German publishing house Manjughosha Edition and serves as its editor in chief.
I have been a student of Rinpoche’s since 1990. I am deeply touched to be a tiny little part of this thrilling, manifold undertaking. It is a real honor to contribute to the preservation of the precious Buddhist teachings, making them available for generations to come through translation, and supporting people who study and practice them. It shows Rinpoche´s vast vision and deep care and engagement for the future of Buddhism.
