The living lineage of Nyungne began in India by Ani 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
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.
Ani Lorraine (Jomo 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 parinirvana. Ani 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 ordinations from Rinpoches thirteen years ago in Deer Park, the site of Buddha’s first teaching. Ani Lorraine is one of the founding
directors of Padmasambhava Buddhist Centers. She has a keen interest in traditional Buddhist art, and the preservation of ancient ritual
dances, chants and religious artifacts. Recently Ani Lorraine helped the Ven. Khenpo Rinpoches complete Orgyen Samye Ch̦khor Ling Nunnery, the first nunnery located in the holy city of Sarnath, India.
Donation is $80 for PBC members, $95 for non-members.
