Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center welcomes Kelsang Lhamo as resident teacher


Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center announced the addition of Kelsang Lhamo to its team.

A Buddhist practitioner for over 15 years, Lhamo takes on the role of Resident Teacher at Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center in Olympia.

 “It is a humbling experience to be asked to come to Olympia as the resident teacher at Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center,” Lhamo shared. “To bring the teachings of my Guru, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, to Olympia is the greatest honor I could hope for.”

Born in Seattle and having attended elementary school in Sedro Woolley before moving to San Diego, the center described Lhamo as having deep roots in the region.

“It feels like coming home,” said Lhamo

Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center has been part of Olympia’s community for two decades.

Lhamo’s second cousin, Gen Kelsang Demo, founded the Tushita Center.

The center aims to further its mission of bringing modern Buddhism to the people in Olympia and the South Sound area under Kelsang Lhamo's guidance.

With her wealth of experience and dedication, the Buddhist Center said it anticipates continued growth and enrichment in its spiritual offerings.
