Female teachers

Choje Lama Palmo

Choje Gelongma Lama Palmo, the first Buddhist priest of Austria, is one of the few female Lamas and teachers of Tibetan Buddhism. She is the first non-Asian, female Choje Lama in Buddhism.

She established, guides and directs Palpung Europe, the European Seat of the Palpung Congregation, with branches in the German-speaking countries, namely Austria and Germany. Choje Lama Palmo is actively involved in the interreligious dialogue and invites representatives of various religions to symposiums.

In 2006 she met H.H. the Dalai Lama and Gyalwa Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje in private audiences. Both gave their advice and blessing for Lama Palmo's projects. She received the traditional Tibetan Appointment Document of a Choje Lama from the 12th Chamgon Dorje Chang Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche, in his 12th incarnation, who had not issued such a document to anyone else before.

"Our house is spiritual home to all those who search for an entry to the most inner of our hearts and want to relearn becoming one with ourselves and the environment, the interconnectedness with everything and ourselves in order for the beauty of an open heart to become a living experience."
