Zangdok Palri Temple

Welcome to the Zangdok Palri Temple Project

The Temple of the Three Kayas


In his visit to the CET Pendé Ling in May 2010, the Venerable Lama Chökyi Dorje shared with the Sangha (spiritual community) something which until then he had only discussed with the resident teacher, Lama Gyurme: his own vision about the importance of building a «Temple of the Heavenly Palace of Padmasambhava» in Portugal; and also of the impact of this on the development of the Dharma in Portugal — the unfathomable benefit that this will bring not only right now, but to the future generations of practitioners in Portugal.


The Temple will cause an endless benefit to the peace and happiness in the world due to the presence of Guru Rinpoche, as well as to the long life and activity of all the great Masters of Tibetan Buddhism, and will foster the blossoming of the precious teachings of the Buddha.

It will be a special place, linked with Liberation through the vision and the accumulation of merit through offerings. In the future, this Temple in Portugal will also be a school engaged in the preserving of the sacred teachings of the Secret Mantrayana.


It is our hope that in this degenerate age, the motivation to accumulate benefit by preserving and spreading the precious Buddhadharma, and the motivation to liberate all beings, will cause in all of you the desire to contribute in an effective manner towards this great enterprise.
