Karma Thegsum Choling Dallas (KTC Dallas) became an affiliate center of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (KTD) in 1990, as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit in the State of Texas. A study group had met informally in living rooms and rented spaces since the late 1980’s.
KTD is the North American seat of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, the head of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.
In 1998 we were joined in Dallas by Venerable Lama Dudjom Dorjee, teacher and author. We are both honored and delighted to make the teaching and spiritual guidance of Lama Dorjee available to the local and regional community.
A more thorough history of our KTC Center can be found here, as well as the history of the annual “Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen” Bluebunny Retreat, here. Also there is the independent but deeply affiliated Dawa Dolma Meditation Center in Denton led by Dawa Sangmu of Juliet’s Jewels in Denton, Texas.
