Ven. Ani Wangmo
Lama Karma Wangmo began her Buddhist practice when she met His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa in 2000, shortly after his escape from Tibet and arrival in India. Since then she has been studying and practising Buddhism as well as Tibetan language at Palpung Sherabling Monastic Seat in India under the guidance of Chamgon Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche, whom she received her monastic vows from in 2006. Between 2006 and 2010 she completed the traditional three year and three month retreat at the Bodhicharya Meditation Centre in Sikkim, India, under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche. After completing the retreat, Tai Situ Rinpoche appointed her as the resident Lama of Palpung Yeshe Chöling Dharma Center in Slovenia, which also has a group in Padua, Italy. Lama Wangmo has spent over seven years in retreat. She divides her time between India and Europe, practicing, studying, translating and teaching the Dharma.
