Dzogchen Pema Tung Great Perfection Retreat Centre

Pema Tung Retreat Centre Winter

Pema Tung, or the Lotus Ground, is a newly built retreat centre and temple complex dedicated to the teaching and practice of the Dzogchen tradition. It is situated deep in the Dzogchen valley, and is a natural haven for peaceful reflection and meditation. The centre provides teaching and retreat facilities mainly for Tibetan monks and nuns, but guest accommodation is usually available for visitors.

Every summer HH Kyabje Pema Kalsang Rinpoche conducts a major retreat, giving teachings and guidance on the Great Perfection. Hundreds of monks and nuns come from all over the country to attend.
