Join KTD Khenpos and Lamas for Online Dharma Talks and Practices

In the midst of all the difficulties surrounding the Coronavirus public health emergency – people needing to stay home from school and work, giving special care to their at-risk family members, and so forth – it is sometimes easy to feel distant from one’s spiritual practice.

To help our Dharma friends feel more connected during these times of “social distancing,” Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery has scheduled online weekly Dharma Talks by the Khenpos and Lamas of KTD.

All of KTD’s online teachings and programs are being offered free to everyone. If you would like to help the monastery with financial support during this time, it will help the khenpos, lamas and staff continue their work for the benefit of beings. Thanks in advance for participating in the merit through rejoicing, prayer and support!
