Her Eminence Jetsun Kushok Rinpoche is one of the rare female lineage holders in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. Also known as Jetsun Chimey Luding, she is the elder sister of His Holiness Sakya Trizin. Both His Holiness and Her Eminence were taught and guided by leading Sakya masters. Rinpoche started her training at six, began teaching at eleven and became a fully empowered lineage holder at eighteen. She is one of three known female teachers to have transmitted the precious Lam Dre (“the Path and its Results”) teachings.
Currently, Rinpoche travels the world giving teachings and working tirelessly to support the preservation of the Sakya tradition. It is in order to accomplish these goals that Her Eminence founded the Sakya Foundation.
