Lama Ani Pelma (Venerable Debra Ballier) is an American Tibetan Buddhist nun who for the past 15 years has wholeheartedly dedicated her life to serving her teachers and leading students on the path to freedom. She founded the Three Jewels in NYC, which is a popular center for serious Dharma practitioners as well as spiritual seekers; since then five Three Jewels centers have been founded around the world.
For the past ten years Lama Pelma has been a student of the masters at Sera Mey Monastery, in southern India. In 2003 she completed a silent three-year retreat in the high desert of Arizona. She currently resides at Diamond Mountain University where she serves as the Retreat Master. She is also a qualified yoga instructor, certified by Dharma Mittra.
Lama Pelma is the author of The Ultimate Offering, and Children of the Universe coloring book; she works to translate and preserve traditional Tibetan scriptures; she studies the ancient practices of yoga, and when she has a moment to herself writes poetry and spends times with her Shih Tzu puppy named Tsering.
