We would like to invite you to join, if you have had any empowerments. Those who cannot join can also sponsor the Green Tara Practices, and to those who are joining we would also like to suggest giving a donation to Palyul Centre UK.

Let us come together again to dedicate this Green Tara Practice to all sentient beings.

Please register your interest by email ( and also send your mobile number. We would also like to suggest that you become vegetarian during this Practice, and if this is not possible, only to eat meat, eggs etc after the Practice is finished for the day.

Inner Growth Yoga Retreat with Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche – POSTPONED TILL FUTHER NOTICE!


Namcho Tsa Lung Yoga of Self Awareness and Gegsel Exercises

Namcho Tsa Lung Yoga of Self Awareness bears the experience of immediate physical and mental relaxation through the combination of stretching, breathing and inner observation. Working with the inner channels, breath and mind, practitioners are engaging in the threefold-way practice. Gegsel Exercises are the application of energetic movements, vocalisation of certain seed syllables and use of controlled breathing together. These Exercises allow a practitioner to release powerfully the feelings of stress and negative emotions in the upper body and help regulate digestive problems, soothe stomach cramps etc.  The balance of inner channels, nerves and organs contributes to a peaceful mind and heart.

Both yoga and Gegsel Exercises are suitable for all Buddhist practitioners from beginners to advanced levels. Namcho Tsa Lung and Gegsel Exercises have been upheld in the uninterrupted transmission lineage from Terton, treasure revealer Tulku Mingyur Dorje (1645-1667) up to Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche. Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche will teach about the subtle body energies, the purification process by practicing yoga and Exercises, explain inner and outer winds and tigles (essences) and how all these connect to the five elements and five primordial wisdoms.

Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche

Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche was born in Dho Tarap, Dolpo, Nepal, in 1982. He became a monk at the age of 9 and was recognized by Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as the reincarnation of the third Dolpo Nyinchung Tulku Rinpoche shortly after.  He began his education in Namdroling Monastery in India under the guidance of H.H. Penor Rinpoche.  He entered Ngagyur Nyingma Institute, the prestigious monastic college of Palyul Namdroling Monastery at the age of 15 in 1997, where he studied, debated and researched the sutra and tantra teachings of Lord Buddha for ten years. Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche finished the advanced Buddhist studies in 2007, and was appointed a fully-fledged teacher at Ngagyur Nyingma Institute the year after. He reached the status of university professor thereafter.

Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche has travelled extensively through Asia, Europe and other countries teaching Buddhist philosophy, giving public talks on mind training, conducting health seminars and raising the awareness about Dolpo region in Nepal. He started implementing various health, educational and environmental projects in Dolpo in 2007.


Tintern Village, Travel & Accommodation

Tintern (Welsh, Tyndyrn) is the village and community on the west bank of the river Wye in Monmouthshire, Wales, close to the border with England, about 6 miles north of market town Chepstow. Tintern is designated as a Conservation Area. Few people fail to be moved by their first glimpse of Tintern Abbey. Set in the Wye Valley, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the atmospheric ruins of this Cistercian monastery were recently included in Country Life’s top ten British heritage sites. Already a must-see destination by the 18th century, the abbey has inspired poems by William Wordsworth and Alfred Lord Tennyson and paintings by JMW Turner.

Tintern has touched the world in many ways. It was the centre of industry for hundreds of years – conservation work has revealed that there were countless forges and furnaces along the Wye and its tributaries in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Brass was first made in Britain at the Abbey Forge and it was the first place to make wire on an industrial scale, most notably the first transatlantic cable was made here.

The completion of A466 road in the valley in 1829, and the arrival of the Wye Valley Railway in the 1970s, greatly increased the number of visitors and tourism became the mainstay of Tintern’s economy and remains so today. Besides many nature trails and activities in and around Tintern, there are also many attractions to visit, such as  Tintern Abbey, Parva Farm Vineyard, The Old Station Tintern, Stella & Rose Book Shop, Spirit of the Green Man Studio, Silver Circle Distillery etc.

There is plenty of choice of accommodation in Tintern, and the rates are reasonable if the bookings are made in advance.  Places include The Royal George Hotel, Parva Farmhouse, The Royal George Tintern, Tintern Abbey Cottage, Tintern Old Rectory B&B; holiday homes such as Cider Mill Lodge, Wye View, Riverside; other homes and cottages to rent can be found on, and there are 3 campsites. There are also restaurants, pubs and coffee shops in Tintern for evening meals etc.

The historic market town of Chepstow is just 6 miles away from Tintern, and the bus service 69 runs hourly from about 7am until 7pm every day (weekends reduced schedule) between Tintern and Chepstow.  Chepstow has an ageless beauty, modern infrastructure, historic sights, places to stay, see and things to do.

The easiest, and cheapest way to get from London to Tintern is by bus or car. Buses run from London Victoria Coach Station to Chepstow 4 times a day, then there is a short bus or taxi ride to Tintern. Chepstow is connected with London via M4 and M48, with further 10 minutes’ drive from Chepstow to Tintern via A466. Trains go regularly from London Paddington train station to Chepstow via Newport or Gloucester.

Dear Dharma Friend!

We have reached our goal of hundred million of Guru Rinpoche Mantra today, (SIDI DUNGDRUP) 15 May 2020, but we still will be doing recitations until 22 May – we are doing additional mantras in case we missed the total recitation of hundred million, which is known as “khakong” in Tibetan.

On 23 May Saga Dawa starts; as you know this one of the most holy months in our tradition, and in order to make the most of this lock down period, we will continue to practise and pray until the end of Saga Dawa on the next full moon, June 5.

On the following dates we will recite these different mantras:
23 and 24 May, Avalokiteshvara mantra.
25 and 26 May, Amitabha mantra.
27 and 28 May, Tara Mantra.
29 and 30 May, Parnasavari mantra.
31 May and 1 June, Medicine Budda mantra
2 and 3 June, Lord Buddha mantra.
4 and 5 June, Guru Tsokbum, accumulating hundred thousand tsok offering to Guru Rinpoche.

Please send in your mantra accumulations as usual.

This will be the last day of our 72 days reciting a hundred million Guru Rinpoche mantra and other mantras. The Palyul Centre UK has requested the three great Khenchens of Namdroling, together with Khentul Gyangkhang Rinpoche and Mugsang Kuchen Rinpoche, to dedicate all merit achieved through our recitations on the auspicious final day of Saga Dawa. We have also requested the monastery to perform the enriching fire puja through Lama Rigzen Dupa, to light one thousand butter lamps and to make tsok offerings for us on that day.

May all sentient beings enjoy happiness and the causes of happiness!
May they be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!
May they never be separated from the sacred happiness devoid of suffering!
And may they dwell in boundless equanimity that is free from attachment and aversion!

Join us in accumulating SIDI THUNG DRUP – 100 million Guru Rinpoche mantras!

Tashi Deleck!  I hope you are all keeping well and safe.

The Palyul Centre UK invites you to join us in accumulating SIDI THUNG DRUP (100 million Guru Rinpoche mantras) at home in your own time. The purpose of this is to grant the blessing of the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen, who is the embodiment of the Buddhas of three times, to pacify Covid-19 and to pray for those who have passed away.

On 25th March 2020 the Palyul Centre UK, with a small group of our Sangha, our Himalayan Dharma friends, and Palyul Sanghas in Europe, began to recite the Guru Ripoche mantra.

The Palyul Centre UK’s initial accumulation goal was 1,200,000, but, as the days passed, our group got bigger, and now we have over a hundred people, but we would still welcome more, as not only can we reach our target quickly, but also our recitation and prayers will be more powerful by having a large number of practitioners. On 24th April, day 30, we reached over 15 million mantras.

Also our mother monastery the Namdroling Monastery in South India has started intensive practice for this situation – the whole Sangha is over 3,000 monks and nuns.  They are accumulating Guru Rinpoche mantras, and the Palyul Centre New York is also aiming for SIDI THUNG DRUP.

If you would like to join the Palyul Centre UK in this, you can submit your daily total of Guru Rinpoche mantras by 10pm each day, either on the Palyul Centre UK Facebook, or the Palyul Centre UK WhatsApp group or text me on 07865 047875.

 Many thanks and stay safe!

 Chonyi Wodser
