Milarepa Osel Cho Dzong

Milarepa Ösel Chö Dzong was formed under the guidance of Tibetan Buddhist Master Lama Norlha Rinpoche by practitioners of the Kagyu lineage of transmission, in the greater Knoxville area.

With sanctuaries both within the thriving city of Knoxville and just beyond, in the Smoky Mountains, MOCD offers people of varied levels and interests the opportunity to develop and sustain the practice of meditation. The organization provides the meeting ground for teachers across many spiritual paths and disciplines.

MOCD offers the community rare opportunities to sit in the presence of visiting masters of Tibetan Buddhism, receive oral instruction, and empowerments.

In addition, the organization is supported by the presence of a resident lama who bring with them over 10 years of practice completed under the direction of Lama Norlha Rinpoche in the context of traditional Tibetan Buddhist retreat. The lama supports seekers on the path with an extensive array of resources ranging from the profound teachings of the Buddha to contemporary psychology.

Holding the supreme vow to accomplish completely the enlightenment of each and every sentient being, members and friends of MOCD meet weekly to pray, meditate, and study in order to awaken innate wisdom and compassion.

Having been trained rigorously and thoroughly by retreat master, Lama Norlha Rinpoche, in the traditional Tibetan practices and customs, MOCD’s resident lama facilitate short and long-term retreats in these traditional rituals and practices.

With the initiative of the lama in residence, MOCD provides unique experiences for youth to find spiritual guidance for the cultivation of inner strength and personal integrity.

As stewards of Lama Norlha Rinpoche’s enlightened activity, members and friends of MOCD are working together to realize the vision of developing a stupa and retreat cabins in Happy Valley, TN. True to the imperative in this present age for awareness of the ecoglogical, the sacred monument and facilities will set an example for sustainability and reflect a global consciousness. In this way MOCD’s projects will serve as local expressions of global health and harmony of the elements.

In all, Milarepa Ösel Chö Dzong is an invaluable resource that provides the framework, environment, and support for practices that strengthen individual’s and communities’ ability to heal mind, body, and spirit.
