Newcomers to KTC are encouraged to attend public events and classes for some time before becoming members. Membership should imply a commitment to this spiritual path, and in particular an intention to take Refuge in the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.  The meaning of taking Refuge is described in detail in our Newcomers class.

Membership helps to financially support the activities of KTC in general, and also helps meet the practical needs of our resident teacher Lama Dudjom Dorjee and his family.

KTC Dallas is member-funded, with no financial assistance from outside entities.
