Walking the Path of Wisdom & Compassion
Venerable Thubten Damcho
Hosted by Singapore Buddhist Mission
August 15, 10:30 am Singapore Time (August 14, 7:30 pm Pacific Time)
Venerable Thubten Damcho reflects on the Buddha’s life story, in particular the four messengers who prompted the Siddharta to renounce the palace life to begin his journey to full awakening. She shares about the four messengers in her own life that inspired her to ordain as a monastic and strive to walk the path of wisdom and compassion.
Venerable Thubten Damcho was born and raised in Singapore, but met the Dharma in the U.S. where she attended Princeton University. She ordained as a novice nun at Sravasti Abbey in 2013 and received full ordination at Miao Fa Temple in Taiwan in 2016. Ven. Damcho has given Dharma talks in Idaho, India, and Singapore, and she helps to guide a weekly meditation class at the Spokane Unitarian Universalist Church. She was the Chinese-English interpreter at a full ordination program in Taiwan in 2019, and has studied Tibetan through Maitripa College since 2017.
