Ama-la: Ringu Tulku's Mother

Radiant photograph of Ringu Tulku’s mother, Ama-la, a close childhood friend of Khandro Tsering Chödrön, born near Dzogchen Monastery in old Tibet.  She presently lives between Gangtok, Sikkim and Boudhanath, Nepal.

A life of practice written all over her face.  A being of infinite sweetness. 

Creating beings of infinite sweetness.

The photograph was taken during the empowerments by Yanthang Rinpoche at Shechen Monastery in October 2013.  Photo by Dharma Eye photographer Victoria Knobloch.
