Lama Norlha Rinpoche Consecrates KSC’s Stupa Garden of Merit
KSC’s Stupa Garden of Merit has been consecrated by The Very Venerable Lama Norlha Rinpoche. KSC’s sangha wishes to express it’s heart-felt joy and gratitude to Rinpoche and Lama Jamdron and Tenpa Lekshe for their extraordinary visit to South Florida. Thank you Rinpoche!
Live Release of Sentient Beings this Sunday August 3rd at 9am
It is said that live release practices done with entirely pure motivation and conduct increases ones lifespan, protects from illness and helps to remove obstacles. In accord with Lama Norlha Rinpoche’s encouragement, we continue to have live releases at KSC. Sunday, August 3, sangha members will be buying sentient beings that would otherwise be used as bait and bringing them to KSC where they will be prayed over and released near the stupas right before the usual Sunday morning chanting begins.
Anyone can and is encouraged to participate in this practice and one can do so by sponsoring (any amount) towards the purchase of the bait and/or by coming to the release on Sunday which will occur promptly at 9:00am. The regular Sunday chanting session will immediately follow and everyone is welcome and encouraged to stay for that as well. Donations can be made on the Donate page, personally, or by snail mail.

Stupas at KSC’s Lama Residence
In 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.
