Our habits and patterns cacoon us in a closed world. In this
concretised environment we become self-centred and unable to
remain open to the many wonderful opportunities that are
always naturally available. We have forgotten to breathe, eat,
sleep and work with the joy of an open heart. In this talk, Khandro-la will help guide us into the profound practice of surrendering with ease into our daily life

Prakriti. Shakti. Dakini. Sky Dancer. The Divine Mother.
These are some of the names used to refer to the primordial cosmic energy that permeates the entire universe. Not only is She responsible for the creation and maintenance of the manifestation of the world, She is also the agent of change, and hence, the potential for the means of liberation. Two great yoginis, dedicated to the highest practice of their own traditions, meet in Singapore in a rare chance encounter. Swami Nityamuktananda, a spiritual monk in the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, and
Khandro Thrinlay Chodon, a Tibetan Buddhist, share a special conversation with the Singapore audience on The Feminine Principle in Spirituality.
Khandro Thrinlay Chodon was born in Lahoul to a family of great Tibetan yogis. Her family holds the lineage of the Drukpa tradition. In 1998, Khandro-la married His Holiness, the late 9th Shobdrung Ngawang Jigme,
the head of the Drukpa lineage in Bhutan. Khandro-la trained as a child under the guidance of the late Gegen Khyentse Rinpoche, master of the 6 Yogas of Naropa and Mahamudra, and received all the empowerments, transmissions and teachings of her Drukpa-Kagyud lineage from him. She was also taught by the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Sengdrak Rinpoche, and greatly inspired by her late father Apho Rinpoche
and mother Sangyum Urgyen Chodon. Since the death of her late husband, she has dedicated her life to Khachodling, an organisation she set up for humanitarian and dharma projects, such as a nunnery in
Zanskar, and a medical centre in Ladakh. Visit www.khachodling.org
Swami Nityamuktananda Saraswati (Dr. Christa- Maria Herman), German by birth, naturalised British, took samnyasa in 2003 and confirmed her vows in the traditional Vedic ceremony of the Himalayan Tradition.
Swami Nitya travels extensively teaching Yoga philosophy and Vedanta to students worldwide, lectures at international conferences, and conducts meditation retreats both in India and in the UK. She is the author of several books, among them, Seeing Yoga, a Contemplation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and, the latest, Dewdrop in Tomorrow's Ocean. In 1997, she was awarded a ‘World Peace Prize’ for her contribution to
World Peace (LGWPF/NGO of UN). Visit www.athayoga.info.
