Lama Tharchin Rinpoche Holds

The First Puja at Pema Osel Ling

Care For The Place You Love

Help Preserve Our Precious Pema Osel Ling

With A Year-End Gift Today

Dear Becky,

It has been 33 years since Lama Tharchin Rinpoche first set foot on this piece of property and decided that it would be his retreat center: Pema Osel Ling. Since that time you and each of our sangha members has had your own special connection with Pema Osel Ling as a rare and sacred place totally different than the ordinary world

With your help, and the direction of Tulku Thadral Rinpoche, Tulku Jamyang Rinpoche and Lama Sonam Rinpoche, we have been able to continue to fulfill Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s vision of bringing the Dudjom Lineage to the West. 

We invite you to be part of preserving this jewel for the next 33 and more years.

We would like to share this beautiful testimonial from one of our sangha members:

Thanks to all of you, we can be more okay in these times, more resilient, more grounded, with tools to work with to keep us strong.

So grateful for what you have given to us.

So grateful to have come across this path.

So grateful to continue on this path. (In my own humble way, doing the best I can.)

I bow to it all.

Please share your own story about the impact Pema Osel Ling has had on your life! You may feel like we do, grateful to be a part of this unique Dharma community and wanting to give back. Please give a gift today to help keep this sacred place safe and a place of refuge to all for years to come.

With our love and appreciation,

Becky Loy
