Lama Lena cropLama Lena (Yeshe Khaytup)

Lama Lena has engaged in traditional Buddhist study and practice for over 40 years. Her experiences include 30 years of traveling with and translating for the Venerable Wangdor Rinpoche, whose lineage in both Dzogchen and Chagchen she holds. Additionally, she completed a 7 year cave retreat in Tso Pema, India.
Traveling internationally, she teaches in a direct, informal style, blending earthy wit with compassion and incisive clarity. Currently, when not teaching, Lama Lena divides her time between home in the San Francisco Bay Area and India, continuing to assist Ven. Wangdor Rinpoche, and providing medical assistance, as a Doctor of Chinese Medicines, to the Tibetan refugee community, local villagers, and mountain tribe people.

The Dharma cannot be sold or have a price put on it. In accordance with Tibetan custom, there is no “door fee” for Lama’s teachings. Rather, it is appropriate to make an offering based on what you can manage and the value the teachings have for you. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Offer what you can, if you can.
