The Nyingma Palyul Dharma Center serves as the practice center for students of the Palyul tradition in
the New York City metropolitan area, as well as visitors to the city from around the world.
Established in 2005 by Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche and Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche in accordance with the wishes of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche,
the Nyingma Palyul Dharma Center also hosts talks for the general public and teachings and empowerments
from the Palyul tradition at a number of venues in New York City. It is our aim to continue to serve
the community of Palyul practioners and others with the immeasurable legacy we have inherited from
His Holiness Penor Rinpoche.
The center maintains an ongoing practice schedule that meets two times per week, offers pujas on Guru Rinpoche Day and Dakini Day every month, and celebrates the four major Buddhist holidays annually, all of which are free events open to the general public. The program of sadhanas includes Guru Yoga and Chöd on Mondays, and Riwo Sangchöd, Vajrakilaya, and Green Tara on Sundays.*
Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche and lamas from the Palyul Lineage are frequently in attendance to lead the center’s practice sessions.
