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!

Instructions on the Sadhana Practice of the Longchen Nyingthig Three Roots with Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche
Friday October 28 to Sunday October 30, 2016
Following the bestowal of the Longchen Nyingthig Three Roots by H.E. Gyangkhang Rinpoche in August, Lama Jigme requested Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche to return to explain the meaning of and how to properly practice the Rigdzin Dupa, Takhyung Barwa and Yumka sadhanas. Khenpo-la kindly agreed, and will be bringing Lama Jigme Tenzin with him to teach students how to make the tormas for these practices.
The first three sessions will focus on the Rigdzin Dupa sadhana, as the other two have the same format and ganachakra. The last two sessions will be devoted to explanations of the Takhyung Barwa and Yumka sadhanas. Pre-registration is required for this event.
Calm and Clear: The Buddhist Practice of Mental Quiescence Meditation
Learning to calm one’s mind and free oneself from the ongoing torrent of distracting mental phenomena are essential, foundational skills needed for all further Buddhist practice. Each month on selected Sundays at 1:00pm at Orgyan Dzong, Lama Jigme will provide introductory instruction and ongoing guidance in the practice of mental quiescence meditation and meditation practice sessions. Next class will be in early November.
