Ven. Tenzin Palmo To Visit the U.S.

The following article is from the Summer, 1996 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

Ven. Tenzin Palmo is a Buddhist nun, originally from England, who first visited India in 1964. She was trained in the Drukpa-Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

After becoming ordained in 1985, Tenzin Palmo engaged in a meditation retreat for twelve years in Lahoul, a valley lying between Manali and Ladakh. She presently lives in Assisi, Italy, and is helping to develop a monastic training center for Tibetan refugee nuns in India and Nepal, which is also envisioned as a place for ordained and lay Buddhist women from around the world to come to study, meditate and learn.

Ven. Tenzin Palmo will be in the northeastern US between September 27 and October 6th and will then travel to other destinations around the country. She will give a talk at Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, NY on Women in the Dharma. She is also willing to share her experiences from her twelve year retreat, to speak on mindfulness in everyday life, or on the Vinaya.

If you would like more information about her speaking schedule, or about the Dharma center for nuns, contact: Mary P., 510 Linn St., Ithaca, NY 14850.
