Heart Drop of the Loving Mother with Tempa Dukte Lama


Olmo Ling Bon Center, 1101 Greenfield Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

Join us for this weekend teaching-retreat on the ancient Tibetan meditation practice “Heartdrop of the Loving Mother” with Olmo Ling founder and resident lama, Tempa Dukte Lama. Tempa Lama will give the teaching and transmission of the Heartdrop of Sherab Jamma, the female Buddha of love and wisdom, or ‘Loving Mother of Wisdom’ and guide us in meditating on the Loving Mother together. Sherab Jamma is one of the four ‘Transcendental Lords’ of Bon and the highest deity of the Tibetan Bon tradition.

The Heart Drop of the Loving Mother Practice helps us connect with our primordial capacity to love and care unconditionally for one another and for ourselves. If we take some time for this practice every day, it will deeply transform us. The true quality of the Loving Mother is within us from beginningless time, and it will be there forever. Practicing the Loving Mother means that we recognize this quality within ourselves. Based on this recognition we nurture it and finally use it as a skillful means of refuge and protection for the self and others.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained Tibetan Bon lama. He is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, and co-founder of Humla Fund. Tempa Lama is an artist and poet and author of four books, Heart Drop of the Loving Mother (2014), Journey into Buddhahood (2013), Inexhaustible Miracles (2011) and The Intimate Mind (2011). Tempa Lama has studied the Bon wisdom teachings, practices, and rituals in Menri Monastery, India, from the age of six under the close guidance of H.H. 33rd Menri Trizin, the spiritual head of the Bon tradition. Tempa Lama is dedicated to making the ancient teachings of Bon available and accessible in the West, helping people bring a practice of compassion, healing and happiness into their lives.
