Palyul Tibetan Buddhist Sangha
The Great Perfection: Buddha in the Palm of the Hand
The Namchö (Space Treasure) Dzogchen preliminary practice is called “Buddha in the Palm of the Hand.” The terma (treasure revelations) were revealed to Terton (treasure revealer) Migure Dorje from Arya Avalokiteshvara and Guru Rinpoche, and has been passed down from master to student through the centuries.
The blessings of the Palyul lineage are pure and unbroken. By accomplishing these practices one can realize the nature of mind — an important and necessary foundation for higher Dzogchen practice. The preliminary practices consist of Refuge, Bodhichitta, Offering the Mandala, Vajrasattva and Guru Yoga. Although the Namchö preliminary practice is very deep and profound, it is clear and easy for all to practice. -His Holiness Penor Rinpoche
The Palyul Sangha aspires to nurture, strengthen and serve our community through study, practice and living the Buddhadharma. We follow the principle of Bodhicitta- loving kindness and concern for others- which brings happiness and benefit to all living beings. We are under the direction of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and our spiritual guide Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche. All are warmly welcome to join us!
Newcomers are welcome to come early (10-10:30am) and practice will begin at 10:30am
