Please do not come to center buildings during government advisory

Dear friends,
We would prefer you not come to visit until the advisory from the government is lifted. We will have no pubic gatherings until then. You can come and walk the land in peace and prayer, and obeying the 6-foot boundary prescribed. However, we ask you kindly, to protect our elderly monks, please do not visit the residences or any building.

Join us for our online webcasts, visit http://www.facebook.com/palyulretreat for more info and live casts.

May all beings benefit!

Webcasts from the Retreat Center

We'd like to invite you to join in the daily practice at the retreat center. This is a great opportunity to carry through the basic practices of the retreat from your own home. If you are in the office, bring a headset and you can listen as you work, while keeping in mind the sacredness of the chants you hear.

Webcasts from the retreat center are done daily at 7 AM and 9 AM. When "live," you can view these here: Retreat Broadcast
