Venerable Sangye Khadro



Originally from California, Ven. Sangye Khadro (Kathleen McDonald) began studying Buddhism with Tibetan lamas in Dharamsala, India, in 1973. She became a nun in Nepal the following year, and received full (bhikshuni) ordination in 1988. At the request of her teachers, she began teaching in 1980, and since then has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in various countries around the world, occasionally taking time off for personal retreats. She served as resident teacher in Buddha House, Australia, for two years and in Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore for eleven years. She is a graduate of the Masters Program in Buddhist Studies in Sutra and Tantra, which she followed at Lama Tsong Khapa Institute in Italy from 2008-2015.
