A Message of Courage & Kindness
from Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
Dear Friends,

In light of these uncertain and unprecedented times, we have been advised to cancel my upcoming 2020 Dharma tour in the United States and the surrounding countries. We regret this necessity, especially given the efforts of so many to create the opportunity to share the Dharma in this way and meet once again with so many friends.

At this time of a worldwide pandemic, it is important to keep a sense of perspective and to act sensibly. In particular, be sure to stock up on essential commodities such as equanimity, empathy and a good sense of humour!

This is a time for courage and common sense.

While the media works hard to stir up more paranoia, we can be grateful for the Dharma and cultivate the antidotes to fear and self-grasping – including compassion, tonglen practice and loving awareness – that often arise at times like these.

We can be kind – to ourselves and to others. Slow down and take time to be. What a unique opportunity to reflect on just how much the Dharma is genuinely in our heart and actions! 

May you, your loved ones and all beings be well and happy.

We hope to schedule a new tour at some point in the distant future. We ask that you be patient and not email Dongyu Gatsal Ling Initiatives , Jetsunma or DGL Nunnery in this regard. Keep an eye out for future eBlasts for information.

If you have already signed up for events, perhaps consider donating any fees or the event cost as a sign of goodwill. Please be in touch directly with the hosting venue if you wish to offer.

Long Life Prayer for
Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

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
and increase.
