The Palyul network of monasteries is the largest of the six main subsects within the Nyingma sect. Not only was H.H. Dharma King Penor the lineage holder of the Palyul dharma lineage, he was also the third supreme leader of the modern Nyingma sect.
In August of 2007, H.H. Dharma King Penor wrote the following in a letter to dharma kings and rinpoches all over the world: The accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, whose identity has been recognized by numerous eminent monastics and people of great virtue, will enable living beings to leave suffering, attain happiness, and have the karmic conditions to ultimately become Buddhas.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Yangwo Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu, who has been recognized by numerous greatly virtuous and eminent monastics, propagates the Buddha-dharma. His Holiness’s book A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma manifests full proficiency in the Five Vidyas. That book is being published and distributed in response to the requests of Buddhists all over the country. The publication and distribution of that book will cause the Buddha-dharma to abide in this world eternally and will provide the karmic conditions for living beings to obtain immediate happiness, leave the sufferings and hardships of samsara forever, and attain the ultimate state of Buddhahood.
