Vajra Dakini Nunnery is a contemplative community of ordained women, and a place of training and practice for monastics and lay practitioners, women and men, old and young. Part of the Drikung Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism, Vajra Dakini welcomes practitioners from all lineages. At the time of the consecration by H.H. Drikung Kabgyon Chetsang Rinpoche, the nunnery officially receives the lineage blessing to open and begin its work serving the Dharma and the community.
Fulfilling the mission and vision of Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, Vajra Dakini Nunnery is the first training monastery in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for western women in North America. It is one of three monasteries for western monastics.
The consecration of the Nunnery Residence, Retreat cabin and White Tara Shrine involved special ceremonies that making them “holy places”, carrying the blessings of the Drikung lineage, and suitable for making offerings and pilgrimage.
We thank you for joining us for this historic occasion and for all the related events. HH Drikung Chetsang Rinpoche, the supreme head of the Drikung lineage, consecrated the nunnery.
