Jnanasukha strives to help through the teachings and practices of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism with an emphasis on the Enlightened Feminine.
Jnanasukha is Sanskrit for “Wisdom Bliss”. Our focus is the realization of ultimate openness (shunyata) — the source of everything, represented in Tibetan Buddhism as the Wisdom of the Female Buddhas. Yeshe Tsogyal, Victorious Ocean of Wisdom, is a female buddha of 8th century Tibet. She is the mother of Tibetan Buddhism and the queen of Great Bliss. Her reality, role, and teachings continue to the present day, guiding beings to enlightenment.
Our roots lie in the Nyingma esoteric tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly the lineage of Yeshe Tsogyal known as The Dakini Heart Essence (Khandro Thuk Thik) which is a 20th century mind treasure (terma) of His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. It was founded in 2002 by Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo, a Canadian-born teacher empowered as a lama by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.
She founded Jnanasukha to bring awareness to the feminine principle of sacred openness—the source of everything which is praised as the wisdom of the female buddhas. In 2010, she established The Tsogyal Latso Fund and The Pearl Mala global community to care for Tsogyal Latso, the birthplace of Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal in central Tibet and the nuns living there. When circumstances allow, she leads pilgrimages to the historical sites of Yeshe Tsogyal and the Nyingma lineage in the Tibet.
