KDK Arcata Dharma Study Group

Who We Are

We are a practice and study group under the guidance of the Venerable Lama Lodu Rinpoche. His main dharma center Kagyu Droden Kunchab (KDK), is located in San Francisco. We are fortunate enough to practice the rare and precious teachings of the Kagyu lineage in this time and place due to the immeasurable compassion of our teacher and his root teachers, His Eminence Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche and His Holiness the 16th Karmapa. To find out about the activities of our main center in San Francisco, go to kdk.org.

Due to the circumstances of the corona virus disease and to protect everyone's health, group practice activities at the Community Yoga Center are canceled until further notice. However, group practice continues via the virtual media platform Zoom, all are welcome. Please contact Lama Nyugu to get the link at Fierro_roman@yahoo.com or (707) 601-5466.

Our practice group meets every Sunday at 6:00 pm on the virtual media platform at the Community Yoga Center located on the Arcata Plaza at 890 G Street. Our Umdze, or Chant Master, is Ani Dechen Gyalmo. She leads the recitation of the Chenrezig sadhana, or practice text. This is followed by a study group and discussion. The Chenrezig practice is especially effective in purifying the mind of afflicted emotions, which is necessary to cultivate wisdom and compassion. All are welcome. You may call or email Lama Nyugu with any questions about the Sunday group at Fierro_roman@yahoo.com or (707) 601-5466.

Protection Circle Mantra

Effective against Coronavirus infection, or lessening the impact of the desease for those infected. This mantra comes directly from the sutra and tantra of the Buddha. If you follow the path of Buddhism, this can be extremely helpful in this time of global disaster, but even for someone who does not follow the Buddhist path this can make a large difference.

I, Lama Lodu Rinpoche wanted to share this out of my motivation to benefit sentient beings. Please be motivated to share this mantra and recite as much as one can during the morning and evening.
