Uploading Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living: Atisha’s Verses

  Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo has often said her pith teaching is Lojong or “mind training.” Although Atisha’s aphorisms were composed a millennium ago, his verses remain applicable in our modern age. Jetsunma’s distinctive, lucid style of teaching is ideally suited to unraveling the beauty of Atisha’s verses and elucidating how they might be pertinent for those of us caught up in a fast-paced existence while struggling to find inner peace in these times.

May 21-May 22 Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo to Teach at Shambhala!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your warm reception to Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo’s visit (as you know, her last ever in this part of the world). Excitement is building as we prepare for her arrival in just a few days!

Jetsunma’s first weekend program will take place at the Shambhala Meditation Center of New York on May 20th and 21st. She will be teaching on the Eight Worldly Concerns (or what she likes to call the “Eight Worldly Hang-ups”) – how they suffocate our very existence, and what we can do to “become master of our mind instead of its slave.” Please join us for one of the final opportunities to study first-hand with a teacher renowned for her fearless, feisty, intelligent and modern presentation of ancient teachings.

The Shambhala Meditation Center is located in Manhattan, at 118 West 22nd Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). It’s close to the train stations and easily accessible by subway. To pre-register, please go to:

We look forward to seeing our DGLI community there!

Chrysanne, Deborah and Evan
