KTC Jacksonville is a Tibetan Buddhist Practice Center of
the Karma Kagyu Lineage of
Tibetan Buddha Dharma. The Kagyu lineage is one of the
four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism & is often called "The
Whispered Lineage" because its highest teachings are still passed in an
unbroken line from teacher to student since the days of the Buddha.
We welcome all those interested in
the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. Our practice center
& shrine room are located at 1258 South McDuff
Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32205. We are in the Murray Hill/ Five
Points Historic District.
