About Us

Palyul Changchub Dargyeling, D.C. Area, is a non-profit organization of Buddhist practitioners in the Palyul lineage of the Tibetan Nyingma tradition in the Washington D.C area. We are one of a world-wide network of teaching and practice centers founded by late Kyabje Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche and under the current leadership of Kyabje Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, the 12th throne holder of the Palyul lineage.  We follow the guidance and personal examples of His Holiness and of our spiritual director, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Our mission is to offer authentic teachings and to create a gathering place for regular practice, instruction and study. We offer this place both for the community and for ourselves to develop a greater understanding through study and realization through practice. We strive to emulate the values personified by our teachers, including compassion for all beings, equanimity, patience, openness, ethical behavior, non-grasping, generosity, humility and simplicity.
