Meet Lama Palden

Lama Palden Drolma is the founder and spiritual director of Sukhasiddhi Foundation. She completed the traditional Tibetan Buddhist three-year retreat in under the previous Kalu Rinpoches guidance in 1985.

In 1986 she became one of the first Western women to be authorized as a lama in the Vajrayana tradition.

With gratitude to her gurus, Lama Palden transmits, trains and mentors students, passing on the teachings and practices that enable one to reach complete awakening in this life. She focuses on translating Vajrayana Buddhist principles and practices in ways that make them accessible to Westerners.
