Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo turns 75!
Dear friends,

June 30 is Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo's birthday. Most of you reading this are aware of Jetsunma's many achievements over three quarters of a century. Leaving her native England as a teenager for the Indian Himalayas is a remarkable story in itself - but it is what she did with her life from then on that inspires our minds, and fires our hearts.

Jetsunma is the inspirational embodiment of an authentic Dharma practitioner. Now, in her wisdom years, Jetsunma is a light in dark times, a source of strength and guidance - and much more.

Her achievements, especially for women, are astonishing! At the request of her root lama, the Eighth Khamtrul Rinpoche, Jetsunma established  Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery,  now busy with the activity of 100 nuns. The current Khamtrul Rinpoche requested that she spearhead fundraising to build their sister Nunnery in Tibet --  Laphag Nunnery . Expanding her activities globally, Jetsunma is deeply involved with the  Alliance of Non-Himalayan Nuns .

On June 30th, please help us to honor and celebrate Jetsunma's life and accomplishments by making a tax-deductible offering to  the DGL Nunnery Endowment .
May we pray for Jetsunma's Long Life.

With love and gratitude,

Glorious, foremost and holy one
Who through the blessings of
The Three Jewels and three roots
Spreads the amazing
Teachings of the meaning lineage
Far and wide across the world -
May you live long and may your
Enlightened activities flourish
