Lama Jamdron began her study of Tibetan Buddhism in 1984, soon after graduating from Vassar College in New York. In 1986 she entered the traditional Tibetan Buddhist three-year meditation retreat under the guidance of renowned retreat master Lama Norlha Rinpoche. Participants in such a retreat study original Tibetan texts and practice a graduated path of meditations that introduces them to the entire scope of Tibetan Buddhist teachings.
Lama Jamdron has lived at Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery since 1986, acting as an assistant teacher for the three-year reatreats and as translator and personal secretary for Lama Norlha Rinpoche. She has accompanied Rinpoche on teaching tours all over the world, and recently returned from her fourth trip to Tibet, where she assisted Rinpoche in his efforts to establish and maintain monasteries for monks and nuns, and schools and medical programs for the public.
