Karma Choeling and the New Zealand Karma Kagyu Trust exist to make available to New Zealanders, the teachings and blessings of the Karma Kagyu Lineage, one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, dating back to the 10th century, and now one of the most widely disseminated in the west.This aim is achieved by employing qualified resident teachers (lamas) who can present the three baskets of the Buddha's teachings, and can provide instructions on meditation practices to suit each individual's needs and temperament as well as advice on coping with the problems of everyday life.Shinran Shonin (1173-1262), founder of the Jodo Shinshu school of Japanese Pure Land, married, and he authorized Jodo Shinshu priests to marry.In the centuries that followed, the marriage of Japanese Buddhist monks may not have been the rule, but it was a not-infrequent exception.Karma Choeling occupies 20 ha (50 acres) of regenerating bush land near Dairy Flat, between Albany and Orewa in North Auckland and features a traditional Tibetan style temple, eight stupas, and an 7 m Buddha Statue, as well as residential and retreat huts.

However, for laypeople, the early scriptures are hazy about what constitutes "sexual misconduct."Most monks and nuns follow the many rules of the Vinaya-pitaka.For example, monks and nuns who engage in sexual intercourse are "defeated" and are expelled automatically from the order.
