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.

Upcoming Events

Support Needed for Purchase of New Space

As most of us know, after more than 10 years in Chinatown, Manhattan, our New York City Center is in the process of moving to Queens, and volunteers will be searching for a property to house the Center, likely a large apartment space or small house costing in the range of $300 – $500k. Up to now, individual Sangha members and friends have made donations towards this purchase. However, we still need everyone’s help and support. Please consider joining with a contribution of any amount you are able. Donations are tax deductible and can be made by check or cash – please contact either Khenpo Tenzin Norgay, NPDC Vice-President, at tenznor@gmail.com, or Karma Dorjee, NPDC Secretary, at kardor5504@gmail.com or (917) 519-4576.

Also, please see this list of donations we have received so far. Again, any donation that one is able to give, even if small, is appreciated and will be a great help.

Thank you everyone again for your support and devotion, which has made it possible for the Center to host so many visiting teachers and maintain consistent weekly and monthly practices for more than a decade now, in accordance with the wishes of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche. We will keep everyone updated as developments take place.
