Gathering in Celebration: Spirit Miami 2016!

Join the Sangha on February 13, 2016 1pm-5pm for our annual Spirit Miami event!

Shortly after the Tibetan New Year (Losar), KSC will celebrate the completion of these projects with an open house. This year we will gather in the Stupa Garden of Merit. All who practiced generosity by sponsoring or donating to the Center will receive presents and blessings from Lama Karma Chötso on that auspicious day. We thank all the sponsors in advance for your generous contributions.

This year Spirit Miami will be held at KSC’s Stupa Garden of Merit February 13th in celebration of Losar.  In preparation for Spirit Miami and Losar there will be Merit Days February 6th and 7th to throroughly clean KSC.

“As the symbol of the Buddha’s enlightened mind, the stupa is a field of enormous merit which benefits all beings by preventing disease and obstacles, and by promoting harmony and prosperity. Making any connection with the stupa is a particular blessing for those who are sick, dying, or experiencing obstacles. The virtue accumulated by contributing even a small amount to this project is inconceivable – like a drop of water becoming inseparable from a great ocean of merit”.

     —  Lama Norlha Rinpoche

One of Miami’s first Tibetan Buddhist Dharma Centers – with the only Stupa Garden in the State of Florida – needs your help. KSC’s main building has recently suffered severe damage to the plumbing pipes which all must be replaced. These repairs necessitate renovating three bathrooms. In addition, the insurance company has refused our claim and will not pay any portion of the monies needed to complete the repairs. You can help!


Kagyu Shedrup Chöling (KSC) is a Buddhist non-profit meditation and teaching center. Any donations made to our cause are tax deductible.

KSC’s beautiful meditation space and garden with four Tibetan stupas is open to the public seven days a week. We provide free classes to visitors from throughout the greater Miami area. Please help us continue our work spreading peace and mindfulness throughout South Florida. Thank You.

Stupas at KSC’s Lama Residence

December 2012, Phakyab Rinpoche consecrated the four stupas built at the KSC Lama Residence. Rinpoche was aided by Lama Karma Chötso, Lama Karma (MODC, TN) and Lama Lekshe Dorje (KTC, NY). Rinpoche took over the blessing of the stupas and the 25,000 sa tsa placed inside at the last minute, spending over a week in South Florida working long hours chanting and also bestowing empowerments to the Sangha.  You are invited to check out the CONSECRATION page; donate to the project on the DONATE page; or VOLUNTEER your services in this very special garden.
