Born in the US, Lama Tsering served as H.E.Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche’s translator for more than 11 years. After completing a three year retreat in 1995, she was ordained as a lama and recognized by Rinpoche as a holder of the Red Tara lineage, authorized to give teachings and empowerments. That same year she was invited to teach in Brazil, and based on the enthusiasm and interest encountered there, she became a permanent resident.
Her warm and humorous manner of teaching reflects her own teacher’s style, with a focus on cultivating compassion, training the mind, and applying the dharma in a practical way. She teaches and conducts retreats in many cities across Brazil, Chile, New Zealand and Australia as well as returning each year to fulfill the requests of her students in North America.
Lama Tsering is the resident lama and director of Chagdud Gonpa Odsal Ling in São Paulo and is currently resides at the Odsal Ling temple in Cotia along with her husband Lama Padma Norbu.
