Saturday, March 9th, 2019, 3-5 PM
Event to be held at: Ewam Choden Tibetan Buddhist Center 254 Cambridge Ave Kensington, CA 94708

Sakya Dechen Ling, Bay Area home of H.E. Jetsun Kushok Chime Luding, invites you to attend a talk by: Dr. Elisabeth Benard

Sakya Jetsunmas are a wonderful example of Tibetan women who are encouraged by their families and society to be religious practitioners. Their hidden world needs to be brought to light and their achievements recognized in any account of spiritual lives of Tibetan women, past and present. Among Tibetan male spiritual adepts, many have the title of Jetsun or one worthy of honor, such as the famous 11th century yogi– Milarepa. However, few Tibetan female spiritual practitioners are honored with this title.

In this illustrated talk, the title of Jetsunma and who receives this title will be discussed. Among the Sakya Jetsunmas, some are known as eminent lamas who have had many disciples, including several Sakya Trizins. Two biographies will be highlighted: the contemporary Jetsun Kushok Chime Luding Rinpoche, who is one of the most important female teachers of this century, and the 18th century Jetsunma Chime Tenpai Nyima.

Dr. Elisabeth Benard has been researching extensively about the Sakya Jetsunmas. She is an Emeritus Associate Professor at University of Puget Sound in Asian Studies/Religion. She is the co-editor of Goddesses Who Rule (2000) Oxford University Press. She has written for the Treasury of Lives (2012) including short biographies of Jetsunma Chime Tenpai Nyima, Jetsun Pema Trinle and Jetsunma Tamdrin Wangmo Kelzang Chokyi Nyima. https:// zh/search/by_author/Elisabeth-Benard).
