Welcome to Palyul Changchub Dargyeling D.C. Area
We are a non-profit organization of Vajrayana Buddhism in the Palyul lineage of the Nyingma tradition. We are one of a world-wide network of Dharma centers founded by the late Khyabje Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche under the current leadership of Khyabje Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, the 12th throne holder of the Palyul lineage. We follow the guidance, advice and personal examples of His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche, our Palyul Rinpoches, Teachers, Lamas and our Spiritual Director, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.
See the events page for a listing of online classes and practices presented by our sister Palyul sanghas.
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that one of the Palyul lineage holders, H.H. Tulku Thubten Palzang Rinpoche, passed into mahaparinirvana on the 10th of January, 2021 (27th day of 11th Tibetan month). He remained in thugdam for three days. His Kudung (holy body) was then escorted to Palyul Monastery where it was received by H.H. Kuchen Rinpoche, Yangsi Rinpoche, and the monastic sangha. This will continue until the cremation day on February 3, 2021. Please read more here. We request all concerned to make fervent supplication prayers to accomplish the great purposes of benefiting sentient beings and propagating Buddhadharma for the sake of all sentient beings. The prayer for his Swift Rebirth Prayer (in Tibetan with English Translation) is available here.
