Welcome!

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.

$150,000+ Donation Made to Nyingma Palyul Dharma Center

We are happy to announce that one of our Palyul students has made a very large donation to Nyingma Palyul Dharma Center – a house in Syracuse, NY with an estimated value of at least $150,000! Funds from the sale of this house will go towards our fundraising goal of purchasing a new Palyul Dharma center in New York City. Many thanks to the anonymous student who has so kindly made this donation.

Fundraising Update and Membership Program

hhpr-yangsi

Over the past several months we all have been working to raise funds to establish a Palyul dharma center in New York City, where visiting lamas can be hosted and the Palyul Sadhanas practiced regularly. Our fundraising dinner in August was a tremendous success, and combined with many individual donations, we are much closer to reaching our goal of obtaining a new space.

In order to generate the income needed to pay for the center, we have been instructed by H.H. Karma Kuchen Rinpoche to initiate a membership program. Please take a moment to read the letter below.
