Sukhasiddhi Foundation, founded in 1996 through the inspiration of Khabje Kalu Rinpoche, provides a vehicle for the teaching and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism in the West. Under the guidance of Lama Palden Drolma, we offer a range of classes, daylongs, retreats, and study programs for students at all levels at our Center in Marin County, CA. Our emphasis is on the cultivation of deep realization and understanding – even in the midst of our ordinary lives – so that wisdom, compassion and loving-kindness can open and flourish within us.
Lama Palden Drolma is the founder and spiritual director of Sukhasiddhi Foundation. She completed the traditional Tibetan Buddhist three-year retreat in the Shangpa and Karma Kagyu lineages under Kalu Rinpoche’s guidance in 1985. In 1986 she became one of the first Western women to be authorized as a lama in the Vajrayana tradition. In addition to Kalu Rinpoche, she has studied with many of the great Tibetan masters from all lineages. She focuses on translating Vajrayana Buddhist principles and practices in ways that make them accessible to Westerners.
Sukhasiddhi Foundation offers a range of classes, daylongs, retreats, and study programs for students at all levels. Please see the Events page for the schedule of upcoming classes and retreats. For the dedicated practitioner, a series of progressive multi-year programs provide a unique opportunity for in-depth study and guidance within a supportive cohort of fellow students.
