ONGOING SUNDAY SCHEDULE

EventsKTC Dallas has a regular Sunday Practice schedule with Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche at the center in Irving.

Our Sunday programs start at 10am.  On the Sundays when Lama Dudjom Dorjee is in residence, there is usually a Dharma teaching from Rinpoche at this time. Usually there is also the opportunity for a short Dharma “interview” with the Lama after the teaching.

KTC Dallas is also one of the few Dharma Centers in the US that offers the Nyungne fasting and purification practice on a regular basis.  This is entirely due to Lama Dudjom Dorjee, who makes this amazing practice available to us. More about the Nyungne Retreats here.
