Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche (1938-2010) and Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche established the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center (PBC) in 1989 to preserve the authentic message of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava in its entirety, and in particular to teach the traditions of the Nyingma school and Vajrayana Buddhism. PBC includes over 20 centers in the U.S.A., India, Puerto Rico, Latvia, and Russia, as well as monastic institutions in India, the U.S.A., and Russia.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche was born in eastern Tibet and enthroned as a Nyingmapa abbot by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. He traveled and studied with H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, as well as with his late brother, Vajrayana master and scholar Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche, and his father, the hidden yogi Lama Chimed Namgyal. As a holder of the complete Nyingmapa lineage, Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche is fully versed in the Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana schools, and is a master of Dzogchen. He has co-authored over 28 Dharma books in English with Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche, and travels throughout the world giving teachings, empowerments, and personal guidance in fluent English at numerous retreats.

Dear Sangha Members and Friends,
Warm Greetings from Padma Samye Ling.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche sends his sincere best wishes and prayers for everyone effected by the recent hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes.
Rinpoche asks that you please continue to pray for everyone and all the many difficult situations unfolding in the world.
As you all know, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico quite hard. In fact it was the strongest and most destructive hurricane to strike the island since 1928. We have heard from a few Sangha members in Puerto Rico who let us know that they are safe even though the devastation is major. However, we have not heard from everyone. So, we are very concerned. Please keep them in your prayers.
We’d like to help at least our Sangha members to recover as much as we can. Please consider donating toward a fund we have set up to assist in relief and recovery after this incredibly destructive storm. Your tax deductible donations can be made payable to “Padmasambhava Buddhist Center” with “Compassionate Action Fund” in the memo.
Please mail check or money order to:

Yours in the Dharma,
the Padma Samye Ling Sangha
