The English born, Tibetan Buddhist nun, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo has spent 12 years, in solitary retreat, in a cave of the Himalayan mountains. I highly recommend the book and film about her extraordinary journey, entitled "Cave in the Snow." She is the abbess of a nunnery in India and is tirelessly working to better the conditions for female meditation practitioners in the Buddhist tradition. Among her activities, is organizing the global conference - Sakyadhita: The International Association of Buddhist Women.
The Three Teachings, compiles three talks, by Jetsunma on the topics of Retreat, Mahamudra, and Mindfulness. The Interview was given to the Buddhist magazine Tricycle in connection with Jetsunma's last teaching in the west.
