Lama Caroline



Lama Caroline, Dorje Khanyen Lhamo, was born in England in 1965. As a child she was fascinated by science and space exploration. Whilst studying physics at the University of London, she became interested in Buddhist meditation and philosophy to experientially explore inner space.
She developed an interest in Buddhism in 1986 and in 1991 she met her principal spiritual master, Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, and, impressed by his modern and open approach to spirituality, began to study and collaborate with him. He also kindly introduced her to many other great masters of the Ganden NyenGyu lineage.
From 1991 to 2019 she accompanied him on numerous teaching tours and pilgrimages worldwide, promoting the NgalSo Tantric Self-Healing methods, non-formal education and inter-religious dialogue.
In 1993 Lama Gangchen made her a lineage holder of his Ngalso Tradition and in 2000, in Tibet, she was publicly recognised by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche as a lama.

Over the years she has participated in and guided numerous meditation retreats. She teaches worldwide on Buddhist philosophy, tantra, medicine, yoga and astrology.
Lama Caroline since 1993 helped Lama Gangchen Rinpoche to write most of his books and sadhanas. Amongst other projects, she is presently editing the Lama Gangchen Sungrab Ngalso Gyatso – the collected works of Lama Gangchen that form the basis of the NgalSo tradition.
She has a diploma in Inter-religious Studies from the Open University (UK), an MA (with merit) in Buddhist studies from the University of Sunderland (UK). She studied Tibetan and Sanskrit translation at ITAS The Institute of Tibetan and Asian Studies, which is now part of the University of Malaga, Spain. She presently spends her time teaching, translating, guiding Ngalso retreats and is busy with pastoral care for the international Ngalso family.
