Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho was cordially invited by Sravasti Abbey in Newport, WA to a give a White Tara Initiation and teaching and a parting away from four attachments on the Sakya teaching from July 20-23. Accompanying her from Sakya Monastery was Lama Migmar. This visit was organized by Ani Tarpin, a student of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya, and nun at Sravasti Abbey. The Abbey is named after Sravasti, the place where Lord Buddha spent twenty-five Rains Retreats. Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron founded the Abbey in 2003 with a mission to nurture a flourishing monastic community where learning and practicing Buddha’s ancient teachings cultivate peace in the hearts of the residents and visitors and, by extension, in the world. H.E. Dagmo Kusho was very impressed by how well the nunnery is managed and really enjoyed being there.
