Welcome to Drikung Kagyu Dharma Circle

of Madison, Wisconsin


With our community you can begin to relax and return to yourself – to open the heart and mind to bigger possibilities. We offer ancient teachings for modern times.

We offer teachings about what causes suffering and how to eliminate suffering. Our group is under the direction of Khenchen Konchok Gyatshen Rinpoche. We look forward to meeting you!

The Drikung Kagyu Dharma Circle of Madison is temporarily closed due to the pandemic. All of our events are online for now. All events are in Central Standard Time, USA.

Dear Dharma Friends:  Khenchen Rinpoche wanted us to pass along a message to you:

“I have given you many teachings over these past few months.  Now, I want you to take some time to study, contemplate and put the teachings into practice. If I just keep giving teachings, these precious teachings will not be valued. So before I teach again, I want you to practice! Then we will see!”   ~Khenchen Rinpoche

So please, everyone, continue to study, practice and meditate!
