Women’s key role in the Tsoknyi lineage

  1. Tsoknyi Rinpoche discusses his vision for Tsoknyi Gechak School and the Gechak nuns in the memorable video White Lotus.


Rinpoche says he hopes the school will produce “enlightened anis”, or nuns, who will be able to teach both verbally and by example.
The 15-minute video, made by the Yogini Project, also features school director Fionnuala Shenpen and many of the young nuns.
“It’s a great video, very inspiring and highly recommended,” said Pundarika UK’s Carole Bishop.
Another video documents the start of the first three-year retreat in the newly constructed Pema Chödrön Drubde at Tsoknyi Gechak Ling.

Seven nuns have begun the retreat under the guidance of a retreat master trained at Nangchen in Tibet.
