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 Kyabje Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche under the current leadership of Kyabje 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

7/2/2018: The annual Palyul summer retreat begins next week. Since several PCD-DC board members will attend the retreat from July 10th through August 10th, we will offer a reduced class schedule during that time. In particular, we will suspend the intermediate class at 11:30 AM and the regular 2 PM tsog practice, but will continue the beginner meditation class at 10 AM every Sunday. We hope you continue to participate in meditation.
We would like to thank everyone who came out for the event with Lopon Damchoe Wangmo. The event was a great success and we look forward to another event with Lopon, potentially later in 2018. We are exploring options presently, including whether or not Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche will visit PCD-DC. Expect to hear from us as soon as we know details.

This is the audio recording from Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche's
visit to PCD-DC on April 1, 2018. It is a traditional commentary on
the Wheel of Analytical Meditation by the 19th century
meditation master and celebrated scholar Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche. The
Wheel has been used by PCD-DC as our study guide for the intermediate
meditation classes. This teaching from Khenpo Norgay is an opportunity
for students to receive these instructions from an official lineage
holder of Mipham's wisdom.
