Athens KTC meets every Sunday morning at 10 am to meditate and to study Tibetan Buddhism.
Our meetings include quiet meditation at 10:00, then together we read and discuss material on Tibetan Buddhism in the Karma Kagyu tradition. Sometimes, instead of our group reading, we have visiting teachers give presentations. Coffee, tea, and conversation are part of these mornings, too.
We meet at 37 Ohio Street, in the building of the Factory Street Dance Studio. We invite you to join us (directions).
If you’re unfamiliar with meditation or Buddhism, that’s not a problem we welcome newcomers and are happy to spend time with visitors to introduce these subjects and answer questions.
Athens KTC is an affiliate of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery, the North American Seat of His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa. We are part of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
We operate under the guidance of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra.
In our study and practice we also rely on advice from Lama Kathy Wesley, the resident teacher at the Columbus KTC. Lama Kathy is a longtime student of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.
Thank you for visiting!
