Please join us and all of the PBC centers in celebrating the life and teachings of this great Master and beloved Lama! His wisdom mind is ever present in every beautiful activity and manifestation of Bodhichitta at PBDC. We will honor this great Dzogchen master with practice on the Vidyadhara Lama.
You turned the golden wheel of the stainless doctrine of Khenpo Shantarakshita, Lopon Padmasambhava, and Dharma King Trisong Deutsen all over the world.
You established centers that uphold the study and practice of the great secret Vajrayana, which continuously follow the cycles of the sun and moon.

Saga Dawa Duchen is the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment and mahaparinirvana. For Buddhists, this is one of the most sacred days of the year when karmic effects are naturally multiplied millions of times, so meditation practice and virtuous deeds are strongly encouraged and celebrated!
We will be holding a special practice at PBDC – please check our June calendar for details.
There will also be a special practice at Padma Samye Ling, our home monastery and retreat center in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, for anyone who would like to immerse themselves in the experience. For more information on that opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (607) 865-8068.
Actualize devotion and bodhichitta by glorifying the mandala of the Inconceivable Lotus Land for this and future generations. Join us in beautifying Padma Samye Ling monastery and retreat center. Members, students, and friends with skills they will contribute are invited to share in this week of joyful and intensive activity. Donations are your time and effort.
