She introduces herself below.
I was ordained in 1990 at Taraloka, privately by Sanghadevi and publicly by Ratnasuri. In 1992 I left the London Buddhist Centre for Spain and along with Parami and Moksananda helped establish the Order in Valencia. I have been actively involved at the Valencia Buddhist Centre since then, in recent years being primarily involved with the women’s ordination process. In 2001 I started visiting the Mexico City Buddhist Centre to work with the women wanting to join the Order. There are still very few Spanish-speaking Dharmacharinis. I am passionately interested in taking the Dharma across cultures, having also worked in the movement in India. I became a private preceptor in 2007 and have ordained women from Mexico, the UK and Spain.
