We are thrilled to confirm an additional activity to maximise your opportunity to spend time with our eminent visitor, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, in this special lunch event on the most sacred day of the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar.

Tenzin Palmo with Lama Choedak RinpocheEvent Details:

As Monday 17th June is the actual Saga Dawa Full Moon, which marks the triple sacred anniversary of Buddha's Birth, Enlightenment and Mahaparinirvana according to the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar, we have requested Jetsun-ma Tenzin Palmo to preside over a puja and have lunch with other invited Buddhist leaders in Canberra and of course with Lama Choedak Rinpoche.

As this is the most sacred day of the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar, Jetsunma has kindly consented to participate the puja and lunch. As conducting this puja will have 100,000 times more merit that usual due to the triple sacred day of Saga Dawa Full Moon, we are offering you this opportunity for you to attend. There will be a 16 Arhat puja followed by a delicious catered hot lunch by Jampel-la, the Tibetan chef well known in the Tibetan community. Kindly book online by Saturday, 15 June and let others know who might be interested in attending.

About Tenzin Palmo:

Tenzin Palmo is the famous English Buddhist nun who spent twelve years in retreat, the subject of the internationally acclaimed book ‘CAVE IN THE SNOW’.  

Being brought up in England and having gone through rigorous monastic training in India, Jetsunma expertly translates the ancient Buddhist teachings for the Western mind, and has become one of the world's most sought after Buddhist teachers. Jetsunma is the founder of Dongyu Gatsal Ling nunnery in India, where she currently resides.

Special Note: In case you haven't heard, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo will be giving two days of teachings in Canberra at the Flynn Community Centre on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of June. Bookings are limited - to get your ticket before they run out click here>> (it is ok if you wish to attend only one day of the teachings instead of both).
