Palyul Changchub Dargyeling of the D.C. Area (PCD-DC), is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization of Vajrayana Buddhism in the Palyul lineage of the Nyingma tradition. We are one of a world-wide network of Dharma centers founded by the late Kyabje Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche under the current leadership of Kyabje Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, the 12th throne holder of the Palyul lineage.  We follow the guidance, advice and personal examples of His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche, our Palyul Rinpoches, Teachers, Lamas and our Spiritual Director, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.
