Informal photo of Lama Tsultrim Allione (right) Founder of Tara Mandala and her Executive Assistant, Anna Raithel outside Chez Albert in Amherst, MA. We met up for drinks on their way back from the Garrison Institute Conference on:

As it was nearing Lama Tsultrim's birthday, I presented her with lots of Khandroling Paper Cooperative products including calligraphy paper containing sacred substances. Among these substances---mandala rice she gave me 20 years ago from her ngondro. I am hoping she does more calligraphy on paper we especially make for her. 

She is among the foremost Western Teachers and proponents of Buddhism and the Sacred Feminine. Her book, Women of Wisdom, opened the doors to recognition of the female lineages in Tibetan Buddhism generally relegated into obscurity. You can read about Tara Mandala at
