Jnanasukha—Tradition & Innovation
Cyberspace is our main temple. We support an international sangha through webinars, digital resources, translations, research, retreats, and The Pearl Mala Fund for the Tsogyal Latso nuns in Tibet.
Jnanasukha offers the teachings and practices of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism with an emphasis on the Enlightened Feminine.
Our focus is the realization of sacred openness (shunyata)—the source of everything, represented in Tibetan Buddhism as the Wisdom of the Female Buddhas. Yeshe Tsogyal, Victorious Ocean of Wisdom, is a female buddha of 8th century Tibet. She is the mother of Tibetan Buddhism and the queen of Great Bliss. Her reality, role, and teachings continue to the present day, guiding beings to enlightenment.
Our roots lie in the Nyingma esoteric tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly the lineage of Yeshe Tsogyal known as The Dakini Heart Essence (Khandro Thuk Thik) which is a 20th century mind treasure (terma) of His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche.
Jnanasukha is Sanskrit for Wisdom Bliss. We were founded in 2001 by Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo, a Canadian-born teacher who weaves together her depth of understanding, meditative experience, and ability to make the tradition meaningful in the West.
