Vajra Dakini Nunnery is a contemplative community in the Drikung Kagyu Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Founded with the blessing and patronage of His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche, it is dedicated to peace, practice and service. VDN is both a community of nuns and lay women in training, established for the purpose of providing food, housing and a suitable religious environment for those nuns. Equally Vajra Dakini is also a source of compassion training and practice for the public, women and men, old and young. Vajra Dakini regularly offers both traditional retreats and also compassion training in diverse settings including businesses, hospitals, hospices, colleges and universities. VDN is incorporated for exclusively religious purposes.
