Khandro Rinpoche was born in the Indian Himalayas, in a valley called Lahoul (also known as Garsha in the Tibetan texts). Throughout her life, she has quietly and diligently practiced the Buddhist teachings of her precious family lineage.
In her early adult life, Khandro Rinpoche spiritual master, Gegen Khyentse, recognised her capacity to manifest dharma activities and gave the name 'Khachodling' to her vision. Khandro Rinpoche will be staying at the Khachodling Dakini Sanctuary in Hervey Bay, where she is the Spiritual Director and runs classes.
