A Garland of Immortal Wish-fulfilling Trees: The Palyul Tradition of Nyingmapa by Ven. Tsering Lama Jampal Zangpo, translated by Sangye Khandro on page 135 states: “Free from the stain of partiality, Thubten Palzang’s activities are like a great ocean of enlightened conduct for the benefit of the doctrine and sentient beings. Thubten Palzang presently resides at and presides over the Palyul monastery in Tibet.” Venerable Tulku Thubsang led 2004 Summer retreat in Upstate Palyul Center, offering teachings and bestowing following Empowerments: Taphak, Tamar, Sangdu, Namcho Vajrasattva, Namcho Padmasambhava, Kyerim & Dzogrim, 8 Herukas. In New York City Venerable Tulku Rinpoche offered Shi-Tro and Amitayus Form of Guru Rinpoche empowerments.
An offering of aspiration prayer:
I pray for the excellent health of the teacher,
I pray for supreme long life as well.
I pray for the ever-increasing expansion of miraculous activity.
Grant blessings that I may never be separate from the Lama!
