My New Life at Kopan Nunnery with Venerable Thubten Chöying

7:30 pm Thursday, August 6, 2020


Kadampa Center is happy to host Venerable Thubten Chöying online as she shares images, impressions and insights from her new life as a nun at Kopan Nunnery outside Kathmandu, Nepal. 

Venerable Chöying (formerly Sarah Brooks, Spiritual Program Coordinator at Kadampa Center in Raleigh, NC, USA and at Mahamudra Centre in Colville, NZ) ordained in January this year with Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of our mother organization, FPMT.

Come for an evening of hearing the joys and trials of immersion into the ordained life. 



The evening will be offered on Zoom and livestreamed on YouTube. 

Registration is required to participate via Zoom.

Access to the YouTube livestream is available on Kadampa Center's website.

There will be opportunities to ask questions.




Generosity is the first perfection of a bodhisattva!

Anyone joyfully inspired by the lives of these dedicated women can help support Venerable Chöying and all the nuns at Kopan by making a donation directly to the nunnery.

The most urgent need is for food, but all donations will be used well to support the thriving community in the nunnery.

In keeping with our tradition, Kadampa Center offers this program with no fee to participants. 

Of course, we welcome offerings to help support our programs!
