Yudron Wangmo

In by Erik Pema Kunsang

Naljorma Yudron Wangmo is a longtime practitioner of Nyingma Buddhism who is living the open question of what it means to be a Buddhist yogini in twenty-first century America. She abides in the wilds of east Oakland, California, where beauty and violence collide. Not knowing what to do with herself since her lama told her to stop doing long retreats, she is writing novels about flawed heroic teenagers who are transformed by Dharma. Yudron’s website.
