The Enlightened Sage taught all the aspects of the Doctrine for the sake of wisdom. Therefore those who wish to have an end of suffering must cultivate this wisdom. — Santideva Chap 9.1

At the heart of the bodhisattva’s path is wisdom — a wisdom that sees beyond our assumptions and beliefs and recognizes the emptiness of all phenomena. During this program and drawing from her own profound experience, Khandro Rinpoche will bring this understanding to life, inviting us into a space of deep, embodied wisdom. Her teachings will emphasize practical ways to apply Shantideva’s profound teachings, imbuing our lives with increased awareness, compassion, and wisdom.


Are you interested in imbuing your life with increased awareness, compassion, and wisdom? Have you read The Way of the Bodhisattva but struggle to extract its profound meaning? If so, this event is an ideal opportunity to learn from a deeply revered lineage holder, Khandro Rinpoche.


In this event you will learn: 

  • about bodhichitta and how it applies to our lives and practice
  • ways of imbuing our lives with increased compassion and understanding
  • about wisdom and how to cultivate the profound view of emptiness
  • about how wisdom and compassion serve as two wings of our path


This event will include a teaching followed by Q&A.

Thank you for your interest

Rinpoche was also recognized by H. H. the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa as the reincarnation of the Great Dakini of Tsurphu, Khandro Ugyen Tsomo, a respected and revered female master of her time widely understood to be an embodiment of the wisdom and compassion central to the Tibetan Buddhist path. 

Along with her sister, Mindrolling Jetsün Dechen Paldrön, Khandro Rinpoche founded Samten Tse Nunnery and Retreat Center in India in 1993, which provides study and practice opportunities for nuns and lay practitioners alike. She has also taught internationally for over 30 years and has established centers throughout North America and Europe, including the North American seat of Mindrolling International, Mindrolling Lotus Garden Retreat Center in Stanley, VA, USA. Most recently, Rinpoche launched the Mindrol Lekshey Training Program which aims to provide training in classical Tibetan Buddhist disciplines to dedicated lay practitioners from all over the world.
