Approximately 60 people attended the 2014 Khyentse lecture by Dr. Hildegard Diemberger (Fellow of Pembroke College and Director of the Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit at the University of Cambridge) at the Alumni House, University of California at Berkeley. Entitled " Buddhist Women as Patrons and Innovators: two Tibetan Examples from the 15th and 16th century," Dr. Diemberger's talk focused on the biographies of Chokyi Dronma (1422-1455) and Kuntu Sangmo (1464-1549) and addressed the importance of female monastics in the development of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Preceding Dr. Diemberger's talk, UC Berkeley student Khenpo Yeshi received the Khyentse Foundation’s Award for Excellence in Buddhist Studies from the foundation’s board member Steven Goodman.
