Losang has been studying and practicing with centers in the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) since 1984, receiving hundreds of hours of classroom instruction from the many qualified lamas and senior teachers that frequent the Dharma centers. Following her ordination as a Buddhist nun in 1991, Ven. Losang spent a year in India, studying Dharamsala. Upon her return to the U.S., she began working at the Vajrapani Institute in Boulder Creek, and later lived at Land of Calm Abiding, an isolated retreat center, carrying out some of the meditation assignments given to her by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
