Lama Jacqueline Mandell

Lama Jacqueline Mandell is A Founding Teacher of Samden Ling. She was fortunate to have met A.dzom P.aylo Rinpoche in 1996 at Samye Chimpu, Tibet during a pilgrimage following in the footsteps of Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal, Longchen Rabjam and Jigme Lingpa. Jacqueline began training with Adzom Rinpoche on the very day she met him during Sagadawa, the month honoring the Buddha’s Enlightenment. Prior to that time, she was a student of Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche.

On December 25, 2003, while offering teachings on ‘The Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse’ to a large audience, A.dzom Rinpoche formally authorized Jacqueline to teach the Longchen Nyingthig Ngondro.
