The Guhyasamaja Center is a community of spiritual friends in the Washington DC metro area dedicated to the practice of Tibetan Buddhism. The center was established in 1994 under the spiritual direction of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche as part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international non-profit organization founded in 1975 by Lama Thubten Yeshe, a Tibetan Buddhist monk.
Ani Losang Tendrol studied Buddhism with Dr. Jan Willis at Wesleyan University in the 1980s. She lived in Madison, WI, and attended teachings given by Geshe Lhundup Sopa and Jangtse Choje Rinpoche Losang Tenzin at Deer Park. In 2004, she received the certificate of completion for FPMT’s 2-year Foundation of Buddhist Thought program. In 2008, she had the good fortune to take ordination with her principal teacher, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa, at Do Ngak Kunphen Ling.
Ani Tendrol received certificates for finishing 4 years of the FPMT Masters Program covering the Illumination of Thought, the Treasury of Manifest Knowledge, Grounds and Paths of Secret Mantra, and Guhyasamaja Tantra. She plans on completing one more year of the Masters Program when it resumes in 2015. Currently, she is enjoying Esukhia’s Tibetan language classes and leading mediation classes at the Center.
