Welcome! In 1984, Ven. Peling Rinpoche formed the Palyul Foundation of Canada to facilitate people’s direct experience of the teachings and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism, emphasizing the profound Palyul lineage within Tibet’s most ancient Buddhist tradition, the Nyingma. Our primary venue is Orgyan Osal Cho Dzong, a public temple and Buddhist retreat facility nestled at the base of southern Ontario’s highest peak, Mount Moriah. Surrounded by serene woodlands north of the village of Madoc, the retreat offers you ongoing opportunities to deepen your spiritual life through the availability of private rooms for short- or long-term retreat for beginner and advanced Buddhist practitioners; regular group practice sessions led by our resident spiritual director, Ven. Lama Jigme; and periodic events with contemporary lineage masters at the centre and elsewhere. Please sign up for our newsletter to receive the latest info. We hope to see you soon!
