About Dakini's Whisper

We are an international online sangha of Buddhist practitioners dedicated to

bringing the ancient wisdom of the Ear-Whispered Chö (Chod) and Vajrayana 

to our modern-day lives.

All of DAKINI'S WHISPER's activities reflect our mission of nurturing our  awakening to its deepest dimension through authentic Buddhadharma methods 

in an inclusive, accessible environment.

About Our Teacher 

Chöying Khandro holds the complete transmissions of both the Mount of Bliss and Machik Dakini Ear-Whispered Lineages from her root lama, His Holiness, the late Ninth Khalkha Jetsün Dampa Rinpoche. Khandro-la is among the few students who have been with him since he began to teach in the West in the early 1990s.

In 2011, Chöying Khandro was presented with teaching robes and received Khalkha Rinpoche's permission to begin Dakini’s Whisper. Since meeting her teacher, Chöying Khandro has devoted her life to transmitting this rare and precious lineage and its teachings to the West.
