KKR International Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization established by a group of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s long-time students. With Rinpoche’s permission, the organization is called KKR Loving Kindness & Compassion, Inc. (KKRLKC).

OUR INSPIRATION arises from His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje and Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.

OUR MISSION is to provide support to Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (KTD) and all the Dharma activities of His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa and our beloved Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. KTD is His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa’s Seat in North America and it is also the life’s work of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, an ultimate living example of loving kindness and compassion.

For more about His Holiness Karmapa, visit his official website and the Karmapa 900 website; for more about KTD and Khenpo Karthar Ripoche, visit the KTD website.
