Support the Ongoing Three-Year Retreat

About Supporting the Three-Year Retreat

The three-year retreat at Palpung Thubten Choling is a traditional program of intensive meditation practices intended for serious students who wish to train in the core teachings and practices of the Kagyu Lineage. It takes tremendous commitment, effort, and energy to provide the resources for a three-year retreat, and also to participate in one. The dedication of the retreatants, their caretakers, and their instructing lamas is inspiring.

Retreatants pay for basic room and board, but many additional expenses are required to sustain a long-term retreat, and support from benefactors is essential. Supporters of the three-year retreat not only help to maintain this rare and wonderful tradition dating back to nineteenth-century Tibet, but also share in the immense merit it generates.

If you would like to become a benefactor of the current tenth cycle of three-year retreat at PTC, scheduled to end in 2025, please note that there are two options below: to make a general donation (option 1) or a specific offering (option 2). Your one-time or ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

Palpung Thubten Choling is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of U.S. law.
