Welcome to Kathok

Clear Light Meditation Centre


Recent Announcement, August 29, 2017

At a recent board meeting the Venerable Lingtrul Rinpoche eloquently stated that he would like to appoint Karzang Rinpoche as his delegated Spiritual Director for Kathok Centre.

This will enable Lingtrul Rinpoche to focus more fully on Teaching and practice as he will continue his world wide spiritual activity and commits to visiting Kathok Centre as much as possible.

Thank you all for your continued support of Kathok Centre


Kathok Centre offers traditional Tibetan Buddhist meditation practices in accordance with the Kathok Nyingma Lineage as well as non-denominational lessons and practice on meditation to reduce stress and increase health and sense of mental, physical and spiritual well being.

Here at Kathok Centre we follow the ancient teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha who lived 2500 years ago. The Centre is dedicted to creating the opportunity for everyone to utilize and integrate these timeless, humanitarian spiritual values into their daily lives. The highest Buddhist goal is to attain and maintain the state of perfect union of compassion and wisdom in order to benefit onesself and others. This is the path and our collective aspiration here at Kathok Centre

 We are a registered Canadian non-profit society operated and maintained by a dedicated board of volunteers with all expenses supported entirely by donations. Your generosity also supports our resident and visiting Teachers, sponsors special projects and teachings, regular meditation practices and teachings all with the intention of creating peace within and without.

Latest research shows that one of the key ingredients of experiential happiness is a deep sense of community and with all of our projects at the temple and through out the oceanside area this is our goal!
