Kagyu Samdrup Chödzong is the Greensboro, North Carolina Dharma center in the tradition of the Karma Kagyu lineage and an affiliate of Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery in New York State. 

Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery was founded in 1978 by Lama Norlha Rinpoche after he arrived in New York City as Kyabje Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche's representative and director of his centers in the eastern United States.

The intention of our Dharma Center here in Greensboro, North Carolina is to encourage the practice of teachings and practices of the Kagyu Lineage in creative ways. 

We strive to provide opportunities for students at all levels to accumulate merit and practice mindfulness.  We encourage our students to nourish each other’s practice, and to find new ways to benefit every one.
