CENTRE UPDATES

  • Centre Closed during the Covid Pandemic – the physical space of the Ottawa Palyul Centre will be closed until such time that it is safe to re-open. We will, however, continue to sponsor special teachings by our Lamas on Zoom as well as offer fund-raiser meditation courses, so do check back frequently.
  • Regular sadhana practice during Covid – we encourage our sangha to join other Palyul Centres for practices led on Zoom by  resident Lamas.  Please check our calendar for practice dates and links.
  • Children of Namdroling Support – With your donations we were able to support the children by providing solar panels for hot water, bedding, vitamins and medications for their well being. 

The Ottawa Palyul Centre is grateful for your generosity during this difficult time and we wish everyone the best of health.
