His Holiness 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje and His Eminence 12th Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa

Palpung Changchub Dargyeling is a Karma Kagyu Tibetan Buddhist Centre under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence 12th Tai Situ Rinpoche.

The Karma Kagyu lineage is known as the lineage of practice and oral transmission and it is famous for its many realised yogis and masters. The lineage has remained unbroken since the time of Buddha. The spiritual head of the lineage is His Holiness 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

On establishing the Centre Tai Situ Rinpoche stated his aspiration that its focus be to preserve the unbroken pure lineage of Buddha Dharma and to serve humanity and every sentient being, bringing harmony and peace in this world.

The Centre holds regular courses, retreats and events as well as group practices on auspicious days and hosts visits of Buddhist Masters.

There is a resident teacher, Venerable Choje Lama Rabsang, whose guidance and teachings are available for Buddhist students as well as anyone interested in exploring Buddhism.

Palpung Changchub Dargyeling is located in Brynmawr in South Wales, in the midst of the beautiful landscapes of the Welsh Valleys.
