Kagyu Changchub Chuling

A center for the practice and study of Vajrayana Buddhism founded by His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche


Welcome to Kagyu Changchub Chuling!


The Six Paramitas

Please note that when you register, you will be asked to come back to this website to donate your monies for registration. See below.

The Six Paramitas (also known as the Six Perfections) form a path to awakening. The six include generosity, ethical discipline, patience, enthusiastic effort, concentration, and wisdom. Each paramita leads to the next and each supports the others.

Paramita means that which goes beyond or transcends. The Six Paramitas help us transcend our ordinary way of perceiving and acting, which is to place ourselves front and center. They are the way of a bodhisattva, who acts joyously and endlessly for the benefit of all beings.

This six-class sequence will take place weekly on Saturdays via Zoom, beginning April 18 at 2:00pm. Classes last roughly two hours. Read more for Zoom and registration details.

KCC Urban Center and SCOL Closure


Effective immediately, KCC has suspended all group gatherings at the Urban Center on Skidmore and cancelled the rest of the Spring Personal Retreat season at SCOL. KCC leadership has deeply considered the skillful actions we should take in the face of the growing spread of the Covid-19 virus. Effective immediately, KCC is cancelling all group meditation sessions and small group gatherings.

Please do not come to the meditation hall at KCC.

We will still be live-streaming Sunday sessions, Chenrezig and Tara practices at their regular times. We will send the link for the Vimeo livestream to livestream@kcc.org . If you would like to be on this email list, please send your email address to listserv@kcc.org.

Board Highlights

The Board of Directors is currently exploring ways to more quickly share with the community about its ongoing activities. At our February meeting, the Board agreed to publish a list of highlights from its regular monthly meetings. These highlights will be a very condensed list of some of the main topics under discussion, and may include decisions made and tasks assigned. We hope to publish these highlights within seven days following each regular monthly meeting.

First Sunday All-Day Sits Return

Now via livestreaming

KCC is joyfully resuming All-Day Sits on the the first Sunday of each month, with instruction, practice, and discussion led by Lama Eric. All-Day Sits are a monthly opportunity for a day of guided practice in the company of a supportive sangha. Come to receive new instruction, to deepen practices you know, or to lend support to and receive support from fellow meditators.
