Resident Sangha

Ani Gyalten Dechen (Resident Nun and Director)

Pundarika was founded by me, Ani Dechen as a response to a request from Rinpoches from two lineages. I have been ordained for four years and am a mum to two teenage girls. Our centre like most people's lives is a mix of relative existance and ultimate existance or the mundane and the trancendent. This makes me very interested in how to lead the most spiritually rich life whilst living a "normal" life. Whilst I have my ordination vows which I try to keep well, I still am a mum, friend, student, neighbour and employee. So let's share what insights we find together on this website, in this deeply precious human birth.

Curabitur dui augue, ultricies eu nunc a, volutpat egestas est. Nulla metus urna, porttitor vel purus ut, convallis egestas magna. Aenean auctor a turpis ac posuere.
