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 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!

Orgyan Osal Cho Dzong’s 30th Anniversary

His Holiness Penor Rinpoche

His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche in 1988 giv­ing the Longchen Nying Thig at Orgyan Dzong

On the week­end of July 5 and 5 we cel­e­brat­ed Orgyan Dzong’s 30th anniver­sary with var­i­ous rit­u­als and cer­e­monies hon­our­ing Pel­ing Rin­poche, the centre’s founder, and Pad­masamb­hava, the patri­arch of Tibetan Bud­dhism whose birth­day falls on the same day the cen­tre was founded on July 7, 1984.  Our cel­e­bra­tions included abun­dant offer­ing rit­u­als to the Gurus, Bud­dhas, Bod­hisattvas, Dharma Pro­tec­tors and all sen­tient beings, a rit­ual of purifi­ca­tion and rec­ol­lec­tion of the state of real­iza­tion, and the offer­ing of lamps.  By means of these cer­e­monies, we marked the aus­pi­cious occa­sion of the centre’s 30th year, expressed our grat­i­tude to its founder and the lin­eage of enlight­ened gurus whose teach­ings we prac­tice, and made aus­pi­cious prayers for the cen­tre, the world and all its beings.

The cen­tre has come a long way from its dilap­i­dated begin­ning, with decades of pro­found teach­ings by Pel­ing Rin­poche, His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche, and other holy lamas plus the hard work of many, many peo­ple to turn the cen­tre into a dig­ni­fied place to prac­tice the Dharma.

Offi­cial Announce­ment of the Recog­ni­tion of His Holi­ness Penor Rinpoche’s Reincarnation

It is a mat­ter of great joy and plea­sure to inform all the dis­ci­ples and well-wishers of His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche resid­ing around the globe that our beloved root guru has been reborn in Tibet.  Accord­ing to His Holi­ness Jadrel Rinpoche’s prophecy let­ter, Penor Rinpoche’s Yangsi (rein­car­nated being), was born near Leten Tramo Drag or Dung Lung Tramo Drag, the sacred place where the Nyingth­ing Yab­shyi (The Four Cycles of Heart Essence Teach­ings) was revealed. Based upon this prophecy let­ter, com­bined with pure visions of Tulku Thubten Palzang Rin­poche, the Yangsi was authen­ti­cally rec­og­nized.  Please visit this page for more details.
