"Choices We Make For a Spiritually Fulfilling Life"
Lama Lena (Yeshe Kaytup) is a teacher of Direct Mind Perception Meditation and a lineage holder of several Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Her informal style is precise and direct and she is revered by students around the world for her exceptional ability to share profound teachings in a clear, poetic, and humorous way.
Beginning in 1972, Lama Lena spent three years studying with Lama Thubten Yeshe at his monastery in Nepal. She then spent seven years in retreat and practice in a small cave above Tso Pema under the tutelage of her root teacher, Ven. Wangdor Rimpoche. She continued to travel extensively with him as his translator and assistant.
Having also studied Chinese medicine, Lama Lena had a private practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2005 she returned to Tso Pema to assist Wangdor Rimpoche. She currently lives on the mountain above Lotus Lake with her two khandros where she provides medical assistance to the Tibetan refugee community, the local Indian villagers, and mountain tribespeople.
At the request of H.E., Zigar Choktrul Rimpoche and Ven.Wangdor Rinpoche – as well as many Western and Tibetan dharma students – she has been traveling, teaching, and translating from the lineages she holds.
Lama Lena believes firmly that the dharma should never have a cost. In accordance with Tibetan Buddhist tradition, students are very welcome to give a donation to Lama Lena ( which is her means of livelihood) for these teachings. This is usually done at the end of the teachings that you attend.
