The living lineage of Nyungne began in India by Jomo Gelongma Palmo, one of the most famous female masters in Buddhist history. It came to Tibet around the 12th century, and the practice continues to flourish today. It is a profound and powerful practice of silence, fasting and purification.
The Nyungne retreat is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice based on the Buddha of Compassion known as the Thousand-Armed Chenrezig. It is designed to purify negative karma and accumulate merit and wisdom by continuously mingling the mind with compassion, the speech with mantra, and the body with perfect morality. In this way, we will begin to purify and heal ourselves and others.
Lama Lorraine (Lama Pema Saldon) is a Tibetan Buddhist nun. She was a close disciple and secretary to His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche until 1987, the time of his mahaparinirvana. Lama Lorraine’s training in ritual and meditation has continued and increased under the direct instruction of her teachers, Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche. She received monastic ordination from the Khenpo Rinpoches over fifteen years ago in Deer Park, the site of the Buddha’s first teaching.
Lama Lorraine is one of the founding directors of the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center. She has a keen interest in traditional Buddhist art, and the preservation of ancient ritual dances, chants and religious artifacts.
Recently Lama Lorraine helped the Ven. Khenpo Rinpoches complete Orgyen Samye Ch̦khor Ling Nunnery, the first nunnery located in the holy city of Sarnath, India.
