Merit Gathering Days

We will be working on the Stupas in the Garden of Merit on occasional Saturdays.  The next event will be announced soon.

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


Beginners’ Meditation and Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism Class

Every TUESDAY at 7:30 pm KSC offers teachings on Shinay meditation and the Buddhadharma for beginners and those interested in deepening their practice and Dharma studies.  The current topic is the “Four Thoughts That Turn the Mind”.  A suggested donation of $20.00 is appreciated, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. We have many volunteer opportunities and welcome your help in exchange for the teachings. Use the VOLUNTEER menu to sign up.

423Chenrezig, White Mahakala, Six Arm Mahakala and Chöd Practice Friday Nights


During the summer, only the Chenrezig Practice and White Mahakala is done at 7:30 PM.  Lama Karma Chötso usually leads the sangha in the chanting of Chenrezig, White Mahakala, and Six Arm Mahakala followed by the Practice of Chöd.  This session is restricted to members who have received the empowerments.  See FRIDAY EVENING PRACTICE for more information.  $20 donation suggested.


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.
