Becske plays an important role in Diamond Way Buddhism in Hungary: it is a national retreat centre and it hosts international Buddhist courses. The Diamond Way Buddhist Community purchased a part of the land in 1997. The ongoing activity of recent years and the continuously increasing number of practitioners have made the further extension and development of the land possible. By today, a 50-acre land accommodates the summer courses with thousands of participants; the Stupa, a 200-person meditation room and the Lama houses suitable for retreats welcome practitioners. Since 1998, the Community has been organising international Buddhist courses in Becske every year, attracting thousands of participants. Lopön Tsechu Rinpoche, Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Lama Ole Nydahl, and Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche have all given teachings here. Under the guidance of Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, the community built a Stupa on the so-called Snail Hill in 2008. The Stupa can be visited all year round.
