After 49 colourful years working in theatre and academia, Venerable Thubten Chokyi became a Buddhist nun so she could devote the rest of her life to the service of others.
Read about Venerable Chokyi and why she became a nun in her own words which appeared on the SBS Website on 31 January 2017.
Venerable Chokyi’s Arrival
Venerable will arrive at HBC on 19 October and will begin a 14 day self-quarantine. Accompanying her will be her protégé, a newly ordained nun. According to the rules of self quarantine, both will be able to go out in the garden to get fresh air. In view of this we respectfully request that people do not enter the property or try to knock on her door because then we will make it difficult for the two venerables to come out when it suits them. Immediately after the quarantine Venerable Chokyi and her protégé will travel to Bunbury to begin teaching there for two weeks and will return on Monday 15 Nov.
