NaroGatehouseResizedThe three-year retreat is a traditional program of intensive meditation practices intended for serious students wishing to train in the core teachings and practices of the Kagyu Lineage. Learn more about this profound program.

We are transitioning to a new site: PalpungNY.org, as we are now an official member of the Palpung Congregation. Both sites will be operating until the
new site is fully functional.

My heart is full of joy, love and gratitude that precious Lama Norlha Rinpoche is my teacher.
I have received so many blessings from Rinpoche. It would be impossible to list them all, but here are a few:
- the Dharma Path program and other profound teachings
- traveling in India with Rinpoche and the sangha on pilgrimage and to the Kagyu Monlam
- meeting many masters of the Kagyu lineage
- helping with the construction of the Stupa in Charlottesville, VA
- being able to complete 2 eight consecutive sets of Nyungne retreats
Rinpoche was always kind, patient and loving.
It always warmed my heart when I would see Rinpoche smile and laugh.
I remember one time when Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Lama Norlha Rinpoche visited our center in Virginia Beach. Khenpo Tsultrim and Rinpoche were talking, and Rinpoche got laughing so hard, he almost started crying!
I pray that we may never be separated from Lama Norlha Rinpoche and the Dharma throughout all our lifetimes.
