Lama Tsultrim Allione is founder and resident lama of Tara Mandala. She is author of Women of Wisdom and Feeding Your Demons. Born in New England to an academic/publishing family, she traveled to India in her late teens and was ordained as a Buddhist nun at the age of 22 by H.H. the 16th Karmapa. She was the first American to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun in the Karma Kagyu lineage. After living in the Himalayan region for several years she returned her vows and became the mother of three, while continuing to study and practice Buddhism, particularly focusing on the lineage of Machig Labdron and Dzogchen teachings. In 1993, Lama Tsultrim founded Tara Mandala, a 700-acre center in southwest Colorado where an extraordinary three-story temple in the form of a mandala, dedicated to the sacred feminine in Buddhism has been constructed and consecrated. In 2007 while traveling in Tibet she was recognized as an emanation of Machig Labdron at the historic seat of Machig Zangri Khangmar by the resident lama. This recognition was confirmed by several other lamas, and in 2012 she was given the Machig Labdron empowerment by HH the 17th Karmapa.

The Light Within
by Diana Bellerose
My experience in life taught me that there is no obstacle which cannot be overcome and anything is achievable. People often doubt themselves and easily give up on their dreams because of it, but it is not the right thing to do when there is help available.
After years of being lost and not being able to live up to my full potential, I realized the person who must take charge in this life is me. All I need is inside, but it helps to have someone who can give some direction and support and knows how it feels to be stuck and misunderstood.

I was so honored to be able to speak today and most importantly have these brave women next to me. It was an honor and privilege to be able to share my story and make an impact. This is just a beginning of our journey, WE are here to make the necessary change so no woman would ever suffer again. #SheDoes
These are our #SheDoes Warriors who spoke today at the Measure H fund allocation hearing. These #SheDoes Warriors not only spoke, but 5 shared their personal stories of surviving sexual assault, rape, homelessness and mental illness. They spoke as women who conquered insurmountable odds who are now advocating for those whose voices are being ignored. The panel started on a light note but after hearing these #SheDoes Warriors, the mood changed from happy to somber to an atmosphere of how do we help our homeless mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers. Our speakers humanized a dehumanized population using their own experiences.
One of the moderators behind the panel kept wiping away tears & afterward many came up to our group and thanked us for the impact our speakers made. What #SheDoes will achieve beyond sheltering the first 1000 women is humanizing and changing the way people see homeless women.
That is the power of the hashtag #SheDoes. That is the difference you make every time you comment #SheDoes. If it hasn’t occurred to you yet, please know that what you are doing is changing the way Angelenos see homeless women from drug addicts & failures to showing them as our mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers!
