Following the traditions of the Tibetan culture, he joined Palkey Lachen Monastery, a monastery of the Sakya School. Dr. Paltul has been recognized as the 5th Pora Tulku. The previous four Pora Tulkus were meditation masters and physicians who had been renowned all over Tibet, and Dr. Paltul continues their traditions today.
