We are pleased to announce that Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche has most kindly accepted Khenpo Ngawang Dhamche's invitation to conduct a programme in Australia later this year. Her Eminence will bestow the Vajrayogini Cycle of Empowerments and Teachings from 6-17 November, 2016. Her Eminence will then lead a White Tara Retreat from 3-8 December 2016. 

 This programme will take place at Kamalashila Tibetan Buddhist Centre, 9000 Princes Highway, Tilba, NSW. 

 This is a golden and most rare opportunity to receive this most precious Dharma from one of the most revered Masters alive today. We are so fortunate that Her Eminence will be spending this time and conducting such a very special programme here in Australia.
