Your contribution and offerings to Kathok Center are fully appreciated and dedicated for the benefit of all beings! 

With sincerity, Tulku Karzang


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. 

— Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Change of Heart
