The '''Pala Ferry''' is a ferry system created on the Island by the DHARMA Initiative for the transport of its List of DHARMA Initiative members.

According to Pierre Chang. Mark Wickmund's instructions to the workers of the Pearl station in their Pearl Orientation video, they were to proceed to the Pala Ferry to be returned to the Barracks at the end of their eight-hour shift. {{crossref}} The Pala Ferry was also mentioned in the Barracks video that Roger Linus and his young son Ben watched at the Barracks; it would take people over to the Hydra, three times a day, if they were assigned a zoological position. {{crossref}}

A pier and dock with a covered canopy bearing the words "Pala Ferry" on the top still exists on the western shore of the Island. The Pala Ferry pier was used by the the Others as a docking point for their the Others' boat. Michael and Walt were given the Others' boat at the Pala Ferry pier. Michael was told that he would "find rescue" if he navigated to heading 325. {{crossref}}

Sayid, Jin and Sun docked the sailboat ''Elizabeth (sailboat)'' at the Pala Ferry pier when they attempted to Pala Ferry battle. Sayid described the pier to Jin and Sun as being grown over and in a state of general disuse. He later stated that that was part of his lying. The Others captured the sailboat in a gun battle with Sayid and Jin while Sun escaped. {{crossref}}

*WikipediaDharmapala is a type of wrathful deity in Vajrayana religions. The name means "Dharma-defender" in Sanskrit, and the dharmapalas are also known as the Defenders of the Law (Dharma) or the Protectors of the Law in English.
*Pala is a utopian island in a book called "Island" by Aldous Huxley ("Brave New World"). (http//www.huxley.net/island/index.html plot summary)
* On pg 49, the Rani says, "Nothing happens by Accident.  There's a Great Plan, and within the Great Plan, innumerable little plans.  A little plan for each and every once of us."  This is very similar to the theme from ''Lost'' explored with the "Everything happens for a reason" promotional angle that was used in last year's commercials.
*The Pala Empire was in control of the northern and eastern Indian subcontinent regions (mainly Bengal) from the 8th to 12th centuries. The first emperor, Gopala, was the first independent Buddhist king of the region and was followed by his son, Dharmapala. The Pala Empire built many temples in India before coming under the attack of the Hindu Sena Dynasty.
*Pala also means "protector" in Sanskrit. It means "visor" and "deceive" in Character languages and "shovel" in Spanish and Italian. It is also a kind of sword in Turkish. It is Luiseño for "water".
