All activities of the weekly schedule in the UK take place at the Pathgate Dharma Centre - Newcastle upon Tyne which was opened with the approval and blessing of the late Holiness Penor Rinpoche and is run under the guidance of Lama Dondrup Dorje Rinpoche.

Due to the current Coronavirus crisis, and in line with the government's current guidelines, all teachings, practises and gatherings have been cancelled. The advice of Lama Dondrup Dorje Rinpoche is to stay at home and practice.


In addition to daily prayer practices and meditation, there is a Mahakala practice every evening and an Audio Teaching, from recordings of Dharma Foundation Study Teachings by Venerable Lama Dondrup Dorje. The Audio Teaching starts every day at 7pm, unless a puja is taking place. For more information on these please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Quiet sitting & *Audio Teaching by Ven. Lama Dondrup Dorje

*The Audio Teachings by Ven. Lama Dondrup Dorje on Sunday mornings are recordings from teachings on the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Purvapranidhana Sutra. This Sutra is presented in the form of dialogue between Shakyamuni Buddha and Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva in the Trayastrimsa Heaven in front of a vast multitude of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and gods in order to repay the kindness of his mother Queen Maya who dwells there, by giving a discourse of Dharma to her. This sutra is a teaching on karmic retribution and the profound meaning of filial piety.
The weekly schedule continues throughout the year, except when Ven. Lama Dondup Dorje is giving Dharma Teachings at the Centre.
