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.
