Dear Palyul Friends, Tashi Deleck!
We have already embarked on 2019 and soon it will be Tibetan New Year, Female Earth Pig, which falls on 5th February. In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, towards the end of the year we do intensive practices in order to avert all disasters and obstacles for the year to come; having performed the practices, we celebrate the New Year.
To assist us, we have invited Khenpo Dawa from Palyul Germany on whom His Holiness Karma Kuchen bestowed the title of Khenpo last November 2018.
Palyul Centre UK Programme for Tibetan New Year

Saturday 26th January from 10 am to 5pm. Medicine Buddha, Kurukulle. Suggestion donation GBP 15
Saturday 2nd February from 10 am to 5pm. Green Tara and Singhamukha. Suggestion donation GBP 15
Khenpo Dawa will be leading practices and giving teachings over two Saturdays (26th January and 2nd February) on Medicine Buddha, Kurukulle, Green Tara and Singhamukha, starting with how to set up a mandala up to meditating on deities. I would particularly recommend that those who received empowerments from Khenchen Rinpoche and Kyabje Kuchen Rinpoche in 2018 take part – these two days will help you with your practice and if you wish to do a home retreat.
