Welcome to Palchen Study Group
Palchen Study Group of Evansville offers meditation and practice in the Tibetan Buddhist, mahayana/vajrayana tradition. Our roots are in the Dakpo Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, but reflecting our connection with Kunzang Palchen Ling (Red Hook, NY) and their non-sectarian mission, we hope to foster the teachings of all lineages.
Palchen Study Group of Evansville provides students a connection to authentic teachings and teachers. The Ven. Bardor Tulku Rinpoche of Kunzang Palchen Ling provides guidance for our group—with our local meditation and practice being coordinated by a 17 year student of Bardor Rinpoche.
We meet weekly for sitting meditation and Dharma instruction, followed by a question and answer period. No meditation or Buddhist experience is necessary—just the desire to learn more about Tibetan Buddhist meditation and practice.
Exciting Changes Ahead!
We're honored to announce that Bardor Tulku Rinpoche, spiritual head of Kunzang Palchen Ling (KPL), has authorized PSG Evansville to become Kunzang Chöling of Evansville—a fully affiliated, non-profit Dharma center under the direction of KPL. This change will allow us to become more active in the local community, enabling us to offer more teaching and retreat weekends, and expand our community outreach.
Over the coming months, our website and Facebook page will begin to reflect the new name. And we'll periodically update this site to reflect the status of our sangha's transformation.
