Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo was brought up in London and became a Buddhist as a teenager. On a trip to India at age 20, she met His Eminence the 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche from whom she received the vows to become a nun. Thus, she became one of the the first western women to be ordained in Tibetan Buddhism. For six years she practised under His Eminence's guidance and subsequently spent many years in retreat.
In 1983, she accepted to found and manage a nunnery.
In 2008, she was bestowed the rare title of Jetsunma by His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa, the meaning of which is Venerable Master.
This is the second time the Drukpa Plouray centre has the honour and great fortune to host Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo who will teach on « The Four Dharmas of Gampopa » next Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of June.
This teaching will follow a public talk given the previous Friday evening.
«The Four Dharmas of Gampopa » are four lines of condensed teachings showing and explaining the path to Enlightenment.
