Palyul Changchub Dhargyaling Dallas Temple Project
Land and Temple Building Project
A permanent home for Palyul Dallas!
In November, 2011, Palyul Changchub Dhargyaling Dallas made a down payment on 30 acres of beautiful, secluded, and heavily wooded land that is the site of our future temple and retreat center.
With guidance and direction from Spiritual Director, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche, it is our vision to build an authentic Tibetan Temple, Lama’s Quarters, University, Student Hostel, Orphanage, and Hospice. The temple and related buildings will be surrounded by 3 lakes, waterfalls, walking trails, hiking trails, meditation gardens, flowering gardens, and wildlife preserves. All will be nestled among the 2800 trees on the grounds now known as Dechen Tharpa Ling, so named by Khenchen Guru Rinpoche, and meaning “island of blissful liberation”.
In addition to the authentic Buddhist Temple and monastic compound that will be built here, this facility will serve our community at large in other ways. Palyul Changchub Dhargyaling Dallas will establish a foundation for the preservation of the Nepali/Tibetan cultures, focusing on such areas as arts, crafts, cuisine, clothing and language.
Palyul Changchub Dhargyaling Dallas will also reserve a portion of the site for the construction of retreat cabins and meeting halls that can be utilized by those within the Dallas/Ft. Worth community who seek a lush, tranquil, bucolic setting for personal spiritual quests, family or corporate gatherings, marriage ceremonies, and other such activities. The entire complex will be a self-sustaining green environment with organic food gardens; power supplied by green energy and many other types of earth enrichment programs that support the planet and its inhabitants as a whole.
