Become a part of Kathok Centre


All improvements you see around the centre are made possible by personal donors - THANK YOU!

All donations that come in through meditation sessions, monthly sponsorhip, annual memberships, teachings and gift shop go directly to support Tulku Karzang, Lingtrul Rinpoche and visiting teachers (their food, housing and travel expenses only) and paying the mortgage and monthly opperating costs.

Thank you!


Trying to change the world without changing our mind is like trying to clean the dirty face we see in the mirror by scrubbing the glass. However vigorously we clean it, our reflection will not improve. Only by washing our own face and combing our own unkempt hair can we alter the image. Similarly, if we want to help create conditions that foster peace and well-being in the world, we first need to reflect these qualities ourselves. 

— Chagdude Tulku Rinpoche, Change of Heart
