drikungIn honor of 9/11 and thinking of all the suffering around the planet we offer a quote and prayer from Lord Jigten Summon: “Bodhicitta is the best wheel of protection”

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.

With the blessing of His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Khenmo Drolma, Abbess, has relocated Vajra 625822_origDakini 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!
