Born in the US, Lama Tsering has served H.E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche as his translator for over 11 years. After completing a three-year retreat in 1995, she was ordained as a lama and recognized by Rinpoche as a holder of the Red Tara lineage, authorized to give teachings and empowerments. The same year, she was invited to teach in Brazil, where she moved to shortly after.
Her warm and humorous style reflects Rinpoche’s humor and empathy, focusing on cultivating compassion, training the mind, and applying the dharma in daily life. She teaches and conducts retreats in many cities across Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, and Australia and returns each year to fulfill the requests of her students in North America.
Lama Tsering is the resident lama and director of Chagdud Gonpa Odsal Ling in São Paulo, Brazil.
Tibet House US was founded at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who at the inauguration in 1987 stated his wish for a long-term cultural institution to ensure the survival of Tibetan civilization and culture, whatever the political destiny of the six million people of Tibet itself.
