Teachings on Sūtra | Chagdud Khadro

This coming Chökhor Düchen, a day that marks the first turning of the wheel of Dharma, we invite you to join us live with Chagdud Khadro who will speak on the importance to all of us of there having been a Buddha’s teaching in this world, and on the importance of continuing to request the teachings. 



About Chagdud Khadro 

Chagdud Khadro is the spiritual director of Chagdud Gonpa in Brazil. She was ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist teacher in 1997, by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche—a great master of the Nyingma school. Khadro and Chagdud Tulku were married in 1979. She remained his devoted student for twenty-three years. Since Rinpoche’s Parinirvana in 2002, Khadro has focused on continuing the high-quality Vajrayana training he established and passed on to her. 

Formerly the managing editor of Padma Publishing in the United States, Khadro has edited many translations of Tibetan works. She was instrumental in the publication of Chagdud Tulku’s autobiography Lord of the Dance. She has compiled commentaries of his teachings on the Dudjom Tersar Ngöndro, Longsal Nyingpo Phowa, and the concise version of Apang Tertön’s Red Tara practice. She is overseeing the construction projects, translation and publishing of texts in Portuguese and Spanish, and projects related to education and to death and dying.

In addition to supervising the activities and teachings in all the Chagdud Gonpa Brasil centers and Chagdud Gonpa Hispanoamérica, Khadro also teaches in Europe, the United States, and Australia, and is a founding director of Middle Way Education, a nonprofit organization helping parents, educators, and school leaders introduce the timeless wisdom of the Dharma to students in creative, age-appropriate ways.

The Teachings on Sūtra webinar series draws from our translated collection of the Tibetan Buddhist canon and explores key themes from the sutras. Each event brings in teachers of the Buddhadharma to speak about the theme with reference to specific texts in the Kangyur, and takes place on what are considered to be the four most auspicious days of the Buddhist calendar: Celebration of the Buddha’s Miracles (Chötrul Düchen), Celebration of the Buddha’s Birth, Awakening, and Parinirvana (Saga Dawa), Celebration of the Buddha’s Teachings (Chökhor Düchen), and Celebration of the Buddha’s Return from the Realms of the Gods (Lhabab Düchen).
