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!
