Ani Trime

Ani Trime Lhamo, fully ordained as a Buddhist nun in 1988, was a beloved meditation teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. She was spiritual director of the Princeton Buddhist Meditation Group for more than two decades. She also practiced, taught, and led retreats throughout the U.S. and Canada, including at the Omega Institute and Gampo Abbey, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, where she was a resident. A West Virginia native, she died in October 2016 at the age of 88, leaving behind thousands of students who cherished her clarity, sense of humor, and no-nonsense approach to spiritual practice in an everyday context.
