WHO WE ARE
Unfortunately, the road to the Centre is badly flooded in several sections at the moment and we do not recommend that people attempt to visit at this time. As a result, we are delaying the season open of our public teaching and event program until the weekend of May 11.
In 1984, Ven. Peling Rinpoche formed the Palyul Foundation of Canada, a registered charitable organization dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the teachings of the Nyingma lineage of Vajrayana Buddhism, with particular emphasis on the traditions of the Palyul school, which is headed by His Holiness Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, its twelfth throne holder.
The Foundation funds and maintains Orgyan Osal Cho Dzong, a 350 acre temple and retreat centre, nestled at the base of southern Ontario’s highest peak, Mount Moriah, and surrounded by serene woodlands north of the village of Madoc. We offer private rooms for short- or long-term retreats for beginner and advanced Buddhist practitioners; regular group practice sessions and periodic events with contemporary lineage masters at the centre and elsewhere.
The Foundation issues official Canadian tax deductible receipts for all donations which go to the preservation and maintenance of the centre and its programs, the support of monks and nuns, and the upkeep and enlargement of its extensive library.
