Welcome to KTC Dallas



The Special Fundraiser for 2016 Saka Dawa Duchen successfully finished on June 5, 2016. Lama Dudjom Dorjee and the KTC Board would like to thank all of you who so generously donated to the campaign. We do not at this time have the date for when His Holiness will visit, but we work towards this (and our goal of building a Tibetan Temple) in everything we do.

Big News for Texas and Texansc

On April 19, 2015, during His Holiness Karmapa’s last visit to the US, we presented His Holiness with the plans for a Tibetan Temple that the KTC and Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche planned to build in Irving.

We were there to ask His Holiness if it was the right thing to do.

The Karmapa replied, saying that he would design a better temple for us, and that he would help us. SARVA MANGALAM! We were speechless.

We are now working towards the goal of hosting His Holiness Karmapa in Dallas. So far, so good!

It is a good time to visit us, and connect (or re-connect) with Lama Rinpoche.

Never heard of the Karmapa? Here is a short biography from His Holiness’ Website. Here is a short Huffington Post interview with His Holiness. Here is the 2000 NY Times article about Karmapa’s escape from China.
