General information

KPC centers serve as venues for Jetsunma and other lamas of the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions to offer teachings and transmissions for all levels of the Buddhist path. Moreover, KPC centers provide ongoing opportunities to enter and grow in the practical aspects of making Buddhism a beneficial way of life. Commitment to virtue is encouraged as the foundation of a healthy path, and Jetsunma’s students include one of North America’s largest communities of Westerners ordained as Buddhist monks and nuns. The KPC temple in Poolesville, Maryland is Jetsunma’s main seat. In Maryland, KPC has been operating a 24 Hour Prayer Vigil for World Peace since 1985. The Prayer Vigil is considered the heartbeat of the temple, and is an ongoing expression of the fundamental Buddhist commitment to end suffering. The Temple’s Prayer Room is open 24 hours a day for all who seek refuge to pray and meditate. Under Jetsunma’s direction, 30 stupas (traditional Buddhist reliquaries) have been built in Maryland and Sedona, Arizona. As sacred structures and symbols of the Buddha’s enlightened mind, stupas are holy places of pilgrimage for anyone seeking spiritual comfort and inspiration.
