We all have a spark of goodness in us, a powerful potential for developing warmth, openness, tenderness, sanity, and an incomparable sense of well-being and richness that cannot be approached by material or physical wealth and comfort.

- Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.


The Hay River Karma Kagyu Study Group was organized in 1997 as an affiliate center of KTD. Our purpose is to make available to all who are interested the teachings and practices of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. We are, in particular, a retreat center for the Nyungne practice of Thousand-Armed Chenrezig. Our main teachers are The Seventeenth Karmapa, Ögyen Trinley Dorje and Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. We are located in rural west central Wisconsin just outside of Ridgeland.

Monthly White Tara Practice
First Sunday of each month:
We chant White Tara here on a monthly basis for His Holiness the Karmapa, and Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. It is a practice done to prolong life and increase vitality and health. In the past, we have done Medicine Buddha here, which is excellent for people who are sick. The White Tara is a little more inclusive in terms of the benefits. Both of these sadhanas can be done as an individual practice if you would like, as long as you have the empowerment, reading transmission, and instructions.

Weekly Practice Schedule
10:00 a.m.
On the first Sunday of the month we practice White Tara.

10:00 a.m.
The rest of the month our weekly practice alternates between shamatha meditation and Chenrezig practice. Please call for more information.
