Khandro Thrinlay Chodon is a modern Himalayan Buddhist teacher, a woman of wisdom and insight who exemplifies compassion in action.
Khandro was born into an authentic spiritual family, that for generations have purely maintained their Vajrayana Buddhist lineage and practice. She was raised in the high Indian Himalayas, in the lap of these great Masters and their community at a time when these ancient traditions were still intact.
Over the years since a profoundly happy childhood, Khandro Thrinlay Chodon has, like all of us, experienced suffering. The suffering of losing her parents when still young, the death of her beloved husband, of being born a woman in the East, of loss of income, community, and life’s direction, and of constantly changing circumstances.
What saw her through any difficulty were the simple truths she learned as a child. This gem was passed into her heart by her parents in the way they lived their lives as a family and community and their application of the wisdom and compassion of the Buddhist yogic tradition.
Whilst she witnessed the magical powers the Himalayan yogis were famous for, such as fast walking, levitation, and drying wet towels in the snow with only their body heat, she came to realise the true magic of the Buddhist practice was in the power of the mind to know and show joy, peace, love, and equanimity, no matter what the circumstance that life or death set before them.
Khandro Thrinlay Chodon shares the wisdom and compassionate truths of her tradition with joy and eloquence that many find very relevant in this age with its own unique set of circumstances. The timelessness of these simple truths can and has been, inspiring and transformative.
