Losar, the Tibetan New Year, runs from February 27th to March 1st this year.  Lama Yeshe Palmo will discuss its significance and lead a meditation for new beginnings in celebration of the New Year.

Lama Yeshe Palmo was ordained a nun in 1996 at Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery in upstate New York, one of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist centers in North America. She entered the traditional Three Year Retreat which is a silent, sealed seminary where all the meditation techniques are taught and practiced intensively. Upon graduation, she was given the title of Tripon or “Teaching Lama of the Oral Instructions,” and asked to remain at the retreat as a teacher for a total of 15 years in retreat teaching and graduating Western lamas. She has taught at Dharma centers throughout the east coast and was on the administration and teaching staff at KTC before moving to Nantucket in 2011.  Lama Yeshe Palmo is the Director of Kagyu Chokor Ling; Nantucket Center for Tibetan Buddhism, offering Nantucket residents and students the traditional teachings of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism within a Western accessibility.
