I first met Venerable Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo in August of 2001. I had recently read her wonderful story in a book called "Cave in the Snow".  It describes her experience as a female western woman seeking out her spiritual path in a male dominated culture and how she spent 13 years in a cave in solitary retreat.  No small feat.     Ven. Tenzin Palmo at the occasion of her enthronement I was honored to meet her, this extraordinary women of dedication and vision.  The precious being I met was a woman so completely committed to the education and support of women and their spiritual practice that I immiediately felt compelled to offer my work as a heart offering.   She had a great vision to build a nunnery that would give women the opportunity to have complete religious instruction, education and to one day re-establish the "Togdenma" tradition.

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo and the work in progress at DGL Years went by and one day I received an email from Venerable Jetsunma, the temple was being built and would I be interested in making two windows for the temple at the nunnery?  One of "Green Tara" and one of "Prajnaparamita".  Of course i said yes.... I cannot begin to express the appreciation, gratitude, love, respect and honour I felt, and still feel to be included in such a valuable endeavor.  I will be forever indebted to her for her perseverance, hard work, vision and for remembering my little offering to this great project  
The Windows finally arrive at DGL
I have included links to the Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery if you would like more information or would like to make a meritorious offering to this great project for the support of these brave nuns.
