Sister Palmo


Product Code: G00586

A Western woman, a devotee of His Holiness the Sixteenth Karmapa, was ordained by His Holiness as Gelongma Kachok Palmo, but was known as Sister Palmo. With His Holiness, she helped to found and operate a young lamas school. Initially, some forty young tulkus from the four traditions of Tibetan Buddhism attended the school, acquired English, and were able to greatly benefit many Westerners. She traveled with His Holiness to the West in 1974. Sister Palmo was responsible for making available many early translations of sadhanas and prayers. She also significantly helped the Tibetans in their early years in India.
