“Cultivating a Stable Mind through Meditation”

 Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche


Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche serves as abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery, the North American seat of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa. He was appointed in 1975 by H.H. the 16th Karmapa as a Chöje Lama (Superior Dharma Master).

Born in 1924 in eastern Tibet, he has been a monk since the age of 12 and a Khenpo since the age of 30. Rinpoche was sent to the United States in 1976 to share with us the authentic teachings of the Karma Kagyu lineage.
