Tenzin-la has been a resident teacher in Colorado Springs since September 1998. In the first year she presented lam rim teachings and conducted some wonderful guided meditations and weekend retreats. During her second year she led a three month intensive meditation class on "Death and Impermanence" and encouraged many students to intensify their practice. This year, Tenzin-la received a full Monastic scholarship to attend Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Her focus is primarily on developing her skills as a teacher, so she will continue teaching at TSL while commuting to Naropa as a part-time student.
Tenzin-la occasionally resides at Geden
Choeling, a Tibetan Nunnery in Dharamsala, India where she studies Buddha Dharma and Tibetan
language as well as teaches English to resident nuns. Tenzin has also served as President of
Thubten Dhargye Ling center in Los Angeles and as The Executive Secretary of the Southern California
Buddhist Sangha Council
