Lama Dondrup Dharma Talk

Friday July 7 at 7:30pm Insights from the Vajrayana/Tibetan Practice

The lineage of Tibetan Buddhism offers us an unbroken stream of blessings from the Buddha down to this day, enabling us to practice deeply in the midst of our everyday experience. These practices, culminating in Mahamudra and Dzogchen, provide a path to the understanding and realization of our luminous Buddha Nature, the true nature of mind and reality, which is the inseparability of clarity, luminosity, and openness.

Admission is $15. Scholarships are available, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Lama Döndrup has practiced and studied in the Buddhist tradition for over twenty years. After five years of Theravadin Buddhist training, she immersed herself in the teachings and practices of the Shangpa and Karma Kagyu Vajrayana lineages. In 2005, she completed the traditional three-year retreat and was authorized as a lama. Upon her return to Marin County, she began teaching classes and leading pujas at Sukhasiddhi Foundation. Lama Döndrup enjoys guiding students through creation and completion stage practices; helping them to feel confident in their own understanding of the rituals and teachings; and supporting the natural unfolding of their innate wisdom. In addition to her Buddhist practice, Lama Döndrup has trained in the Diamond Approach for seven years and has a Masters of Fine Arts degree in piano performance. She is on the piano faculty at San Domenico Music Conservatory.
