About

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.

Vajra Dakini works to strengthen the feminine within Buddhism through supporting Tibetan nuns and providing leadership internationally while serving as a source of compassion training and practice for the public. Vajra Dakini regularly offers both traditional retreats and also compassion training in diverse settings including businesses, hospitals, hospices, colleges and universities.

Vajra Dakini was established for the purpose of providing food, housing and a suitable religious environment for nuns to serve in this manner and is incorporated for exclusively religious purposes.
