Our Washington DC, center, Kagyu-DC, is celebrating its 20th anniversary at KTC the weekend of November 22-24. Because most of the monastics will be at KTD's retreat center, Karme Ling, on Saturday Nov 23 for Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's 49th day chanting, Lamas Chodron, Jamdron, and Jinzang are going to lead a full-day retreat at KTC for the Washington DC sangha and anyone else who would like to attend.
