Lama, Yidam, and Dakini: Inner Reasons to Seek Freedom from Suffering

Dharma talk given by Lama Lena June 26th, 2016

Beginning in 1972, Lama Lena spent three years studying with Lama Thubten Yeshe at his monastery in Nepal and seven years in retreat and practice in a small cave above Tso Pema under the tutelage of her root teacher, Ven. Wangdor Rinpoche. For the past 25 years she has traveled extensive with Wangdor Rinpoche as his translator and assistant. Lama Lena has also studied Chinese medicine and had a private practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2005 she returned to Tso Pema to assist Wangdor Rinpoche. She currently lives on the mountain above Lotus Lake with her two kandros. When she is not traveling, teaching or translating, she works providing medical assistance to the Tibetan refugee community as well as the local Indian villagers and mountain tribes people. At the request of H.E., Zigar Choktrul Rinpoche and Ven. Wangdor Rinpoche - as well as many Western and Tibetan dharma students - she has been traveling and teaching from the lineages she holds.
