Yudron WangmoYudron Wangmo is an in-depth Buddhist practitioner (naljorma) of the Nyingma Buddhist tradition. She started down that path in the early nineties and has had the good fortune to be guided by three amazing meditation masters; late Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche, and Adzom Rinpoche. She’s a strong believer in the effectiveness of a daily meditation practice, guided by a qualified meditation master, in relieving personal and global suffering. She’s been a full time naljorma since 2007 and has completed a traditional three-year three-month group retreat and two additional cumulative years of personal retreat. In the past she worked as a nurse, a practitioner of alternative medicine, and an ice cream truck driver. She is currently focused on continuing her own practice and writing novels about how these traditional practices of Tibet can heal the human heart and turn our lives in an ever more positive direction. She abides in a peaceful sanctuary on a creek in the middle of Oakland, California, where birds chirp in the foreground and gunshots resound in the background.

For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain
Until then may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world.

–Shantideva
