Well, this year I will not be able to make it to these teachings, unfortunately. But I am posting this hoping that you will be able to attend. Jangtse Choje Rinpoche is one of the few remaining precious masters from Tibet who still travel to America to teach, he was a student of Geshe Sopa Rinpoche.

Palden Lhamo is the protector deity of Tibet and has a special connection with the Dalai Lamas. She is a wrathful manifestation who demolishes evil and protects the Buddha Dharma. She protects practitioners from negativity and obstacles.
