Katog Ratna Ling

Katog Ratna Ling
Centre description
Katog Ratna Ling was founded by Khentrul Lodrö Thayé Rinpoche to provide a place for the study of Buddhism and Tibetan culture in Lafayette, Louisiana. Ratna Ling offers workshops, lectures, performances, and facilities for classes and instruction. Teachings focus on meditation and other practices to tame the mind, with emphasis on how to develop a kind-hearted intention.
Dharmic activities
The dharma center has weekly meditations on Bodhichitta and Heart Sutra. Monthly events include Tara dances and live webcastings with Khentrul Rinpoche. The Lafayette center serves as a hub for students of Vajrayana Buddhism in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, however anyone seeking a spiritual path is welcome.

Khentrul Rinpoche visits the center regularly to give teachings on mind training and meditation. He also invites other lamas to teach on the dharma.
Community service
We send books, clothing, and other necessities to the children being educated at Mardo Tashi Choling Monastery in Tibet. Monks and retreatants are also sponsored. At Stiles prison in Beaumont, Texas, Rinpoche has sangha of prisoners that he visits regularly to give teachings.
