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, no mat­ter what your tra­di­tion; 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!

Please note that due to local flood­ing, events this com­ing week­end (April 19–20) are can­celled.  The road to the cen­tre is under two feet of water.  Hope­fully, the water will go down soon and we can resume our reg­u­lar pro­gram of week­end classes and retreats at Orgyan Dzong and in Toronto.  This sea­son we have sim­pli­fied our sched­ule at Orgyan Dzong to make it eas­ier for peo­ple to drop in for a ses­sion or decide to stay the whole week­end.  We have also added two one day Shamatha Retreats on May 17 and June 28 where peo­ple can come for one ses­sion or stay the entire day.  Begin­ning April 27, Ven.

Orgyan Osal Cho Dzong’s 30th Anniversary

His Holiness Penor Rinpoche

On July 7, we will be cel­e­brat­ing the 30th anniver­sary of the found­ing of Orgyan Osal Cho Dzong by Ven. Pel­ing Tulku Rin­poche - a date which coin­ci­den­tally falls on the birth­day of Pad­masamb­hava and the Heruka Ganachakra both thirty years ago and again this year. 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.

Our next newslet­ter will include more details and announce­ments of spe­cial events that will mark this mile­stone, includ­ing the instal­la­tion and con­se­cra­tion of the seven foot Shakya­muni Bud­dha statue plus empow­er­ments, teach­ings and aus­pi­cious cer­e­monies and vis­its by the heads of the Palyul lin­eage.
