BECOME A SUPPORTING MEMBER of PBC at PBDC
Padmasambhava Buddhist Center (PBC) is a member-supported organization, and participation is essential to the continuation of its efforts. You're warmly invited to join and become a part of our worldwide Dharma family. Membership helps support the local and international missions of PBC, the growth of the Buddha Dharma, and the work and legacy of Khenchen Palden Sherab and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche worldwide. PBC provides a community for the cultivation of spiritual growth, mutual support and generosity.
The most important local benefit of membership is the continuation of the Center itself. Your support is therefore not only of great merit, but it is essential in sustaining PBDC as a home for your dharma practice. In addition, PBDC serves as a primary teaching and practice center of Ven Khenpo Rinpoche during the winter months, hosting such special events such as the annual eight-day Dzogchen Winter Retreat, Losar Celebration, and other community gatherings. PBDC also contributes to the upkeep of the Miracle Stupa, one of several PBC sacred sites in India.
Membership in PBC at PBDC also automatically gives you membership in PBC International.
Members receive substantial discounts to all PBC retreats and teachings throughout the world and copies of our national magazine, Pema Mandala.
PBC continues to exist only through the generosity, devotion and joyful effort of its members. We encourage all Sangha and Friends of PBDC to join and support the growth of the Buddha Dharma and Rinpoche’s work. Please consider joining now!
