Zangdok Palri, the Glorious Copper Coloured Mountain, is the manifestation of the Pure Land of Guru Rinpoche, representing his enlightened wisdom and compassion.
Guru Rinpoche, is an enlightened Buddha and great sage who planted the seed of Vajrayana Buddhism in the Himalayan areas such as Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and Sikkim, and blessed them as Sacred Lands. He also transmitted the wisdom teachings to his disciples, thus ensuring the spread and growth of Vajrayana Buddhism throughout these regions.
Zangdok Palri cannot ordinarily be seen. It is however accessible to all, who through their devotion to Guru Rinpoche, and his profound teachings, can open their hearts and therefore the doors that lead to Zangdok Palri.
