Biography of
Her Eminence Jetsun Chimed Luding

Her Eminence Jetsun Chimed Luding

Her Eminence Sakya Jetsun Chimed Luding was born into the Drolma Phodrang (Tara Palace) of the Noble Sakya Khon family of Tibet in 1938, (the emanation of Tara.) She began Her Buddhist studies at the age of five.

Throughout Her life, She has received many precious teachings and is now one of the few known highly qualified women practitioners and teachers of the Sakya lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
She is one of the 100 highly respected women among the Tibetans. She hails from the Khon lineage and She is the sister of His Holiness Sakya Trizin and the sister-in-law of His Eminence Luding Khenchen Rinpoche.
Her Eminence is one of the three women in the history of Tibet to have transmitted the Lam Dre teachings. She is the earth itself, stable, unshakable and free from the eight worldly dharmas. A pure example of the fruition of Buddhist practice.
For the past twenty over years She has lived in Canada and is the spiritual director of the Sakya Tsechen Thubten Ling, a Vajrayana Buddhist centre in Vancouver. Although Her Eminence stays at Vancouver, Her link with our centre and members is very close.
We are indeed fortunare to have Her consent to visit Singapore and impart us the Precious Teachings.
