Making Friends with Inner Enemies

with Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo 

Sunday, June 17, 2:00 - 4:30pm   

“The basic problem facing us is how to change a mind filled with negative thoughts and emotions—greed, anger, anxiety, envy, and so on—into a peaceful and more friendly mind that is a pleasure for everyone (including ourselves) to live with.”
--Into the Heart of Life

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo was raised in London. In 1964, aged 20, she traveled to India to pursue her spiritual path and met her Teacher, His Eminence the 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist Lama. She became one of the first Westerners to ordain as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. The inspiring story of her life, including 12 years of secluded retreat in a Himalayan cave, is the subject of the biography, Cave in the Snow. A popular Buddhist teacher, she presents the Dharma in an accessible manner to audiences across the world, offering methods to apply the Buddhist teachings in every day life. Jetsunma is the Founder and Abbess of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery in India, where some 100 young women, from the Himalayan region receive monastic training. In 2008 Tenzin Palmo was given the title of Jetsunma, which means Venerable Master, by His Holiness the Twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa, Head of her lineage.
