KPC hosts frequent events for Buddhist practitioners and for the public that range from teachings and empowerment ceremonies by venerable Buddhist masters and instruction sessions on how to do various Buddhist practices to volunteer events and open houses.  There is always something to engage in at KPC.

Our weekly schedule consists of regular teachings (live or via recorded archives) along with the traditional practices and ceremonies of Tibetan Buddhism.

Join us at a KPC Center or online (webcast appears on our home page for Sunday dharma class) for teachings that are appropriate for students or non-Buddhists on such topics as compassion (known as Bodhicitta), generating a stable mind, generosity, kindness and how to end suffering for oneself and all others.
