About Khandro-la – Khandro Kunga Bhuma
“People try spiritually to achieve realization. The true realization is to achieve a kind heart. Other than that, there is nothing really that is useful.” — Khandro Kunga Bhuma
Described as a living embodiment of the bodhisattva ideal, Khandro Kunga Bhuma is truly an inspiration. Although she received little formal education or training, she was recognized by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a realized practitioner and an oracle of the Tibetan people.
Khandro-la’s life story is not linear. It is filled with visions and prophecies that often extend beyond our understanding. As a young woman, she received a vision to leave her homeland of Tibet and head to Nepal. Upon arriving in Nepal, she met a man who told her that she must meet with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. After great hardship, including extreme health challenges, she finally met with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and began to serve in her current role as oracle and dharma teacher.
Khandro-la believes that the essence of life is to realize bodhichitta and emptiness. In turn, her sole focus is on helping beings achieve indestructible faith in these two. In the end, she says that If she cannot help people realize bodhichitta and emptiness, meeting with her is just a waste of time.
