When our world seems confusing we can rely on this simple prayer form our lineages’ founder Lord Jigten Sumgon: All mother sentient beings boundless as the sky – especially those enemies who hate me, obstructers who harm me, and those who create obstacles towards my liberation and all-knowingness – may they experience happiness and be separated from suffering. Swiftly will I establish them in the state of unsurpassed, completely perfected, precious enlightenment.
Also this pith instructions of H.H. The Dalai Lama: “I would much rather go to hell than heaven. I can solve more problems there. I can help more people there.”
With the blessing of Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Khenmo Drolma, Abbess, has relocated Vajra Dakini Nunnery to Portland, Maine. Although there were wonderful teachings, teachers and friendships; a sustainable model did not evolve in Vermont. After reflection and retreat, and discussions with other abbesses of both Tibetan and Christian communities, Khenmo committed to continue the nunnery in a context that would invite significantly more participation and offer more opportunities for the nuns to benefit beings. We have received a warm welcome in Portland with much excitement as to what the nunnery can add to the vital Dharma activity that is blossoming in Maine. See our news!
